Bury match off

28 January 2014

Tonight's Sky Bet League Two match at home to Bury has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

Heavy overnight rain led to standing water in certain areas.

Local referee David Plowright conducted a precautionary pitch inspection at 11.00am this morning and deemed the surface unfit for use.


Groundsman Michael Merriman said: "Due to the torrential rain we had on Saturday, the pitch is absolutely wet through.

"The continued rain both overnight and this morning, along with the forecast that is predicting further heavy rain for the rest of the day, means that there was no chance this game could take place due to there being so much standing water."

A new date for this fixture will be announced in due course.
