Tuesday's Premier League game between Aston Villa and Bolton has been postponed.

The decision was made in the wake of Fabrice Muamba's collapse during Saturday's FA Cup tie at Tottenham Hotspur, in what has now been confirmed as a heart attack.

As a result of the sensitive situation, both clubs and the Premier League have agreed to play the game at a later date.

A Premier League statement read: "Following Fabrice Muamba's admission to hospital yesterday evening the Premier League and Aston Villa have agreed to Bolton Wanderers' request to postpone the Barclays Premier League match between the two clubs scheduled for Tuesday 20th March.

"The match will be rearranged at a future date following appropriate consultation with the clubs.

"The thoughts of the Premier League, its clubs and players are with Fabrice Muamba, his family and Bolton Wanderers at this difficult time."

Any news of the rearranged date will be announced in due course.
