As of today, the game against Bury tomorrow remains on, but is subject to a pitch inspection at 9am.

Following on from previous postponements, there has been an obvious concern expressed about the match tomorrow given the weather forecasts.

As of earlier this evening, the match was on following a pitch inspection from assistant referee Lee Swabey who took a look at the pitch at 2pm and decided that everything was fine at that time.

However the expected overnight rainfall could well make that count for nothing, so the club have arranged for the match official Dave Phillips to turn up far earlier than would normally be the case, so he can undertake a full pitch inspection at 9am to see what the midnight hours may bring us.

Between now and then the groundstaff will be doing all they can to keep the Plainmoor pitch playable and non waterlogged, but ultimately it will be the referees choice when he inspects the pitch tomorrow.

A further announcement will be made in the morning.
