Everton's reserve team game at Bolton on Monday evening has been postponed.
The pitch at the Lancashire FA, where the Trotters play their second string matches, is waterlogged after heavy rain in the area.
The postponement means Alan Stubbs' side are deprived of the chance to build on an encouraging 4-0 win over Newcastle and a subsequent 2-0 friendly triumph over Middlesbrough.
Depending on when the game is rearranged for, it could be the reserves' last action of 2011, with the next match currently scheduled being the 10 January hosting of Man Utd.
Reserve midfielder Adam Forshaw tweeted: "We've been playing well and on a little run as well recently. Disappointed."
