Both Tottenham and Burnley have to make long-haul BUS journeys to away matches this weekend with flightless planes.

Spurs are set to take on Manchester City at the Etihad while Burnley are set to head south to take on Brighton.

The Clarets’ flight has already been canceled while Spurs will decide later today whether to go by road or hope the weather improves enough to fly.

Bournemouth’s Championship clash with Nottingham Forest is under threat after the Met Office issued a RED weather warning for large swaths of the south coast.

In a statement, the Cherries said a decision on whether or not to play the game would be made later Friday.

It read: “The club are working alongside their safety advisory group, the EFL and Nottingham Forest, and will provide relevant information to anyone planning to travel as soon as possible on Friday.”

Storm Eunice triggered TWO rare red weather warnings today as Britons brace for what could be the worst winds for 30 years.

Millions of people have been told to stay at home during the howling 100mph gales, which have already shuttered schools and shuttered several train lines.

The severe conditions prompted the Met Office to issue a ‘life threatening’ warning, with ‘flying debris’ expected.

Power lines are also susceptible to demolition, with the risk of exploding roofs and widespread power outages.
