This marks the second occasion in which the last-four tie has been called off.

Crusaders will await the winners of the match on Tuesday, January 22.

Heavy rainfall led to an initial postponement for the November 27 date, with the latest pitch inspection resulting in the same outcome.

Saturday’s game with Institute at The Showgrounds in the Danske Bank Premiership was also postponed due to a waterlogged playing surface.
