Following a pitch inspection conducted by tonight’s fourth official, the pitch at the Horsfall has been declared fit to play.
There is very little water on the pitch and the majority has been cleared, and with the forecast for the rest of the afternoon as dry, and the skies looking clear, the club are, at this moment in time, positive about the game going ahead. However, this is subject to the temperamental weather of the moment.
The club would also like to make a plea to any fan who could possibly get down to the Horsfall with their own fork to help clear any remaining water on the pitch. This would be greatly appreciated and you would be playing a huge part in getting this game played.

This afternoon’s FA Trophy tie with Kidderminster Harriers has been called off.
The referees arrived and were immediately concerned with the area on the pitch closest to the dressing rooms and the game was called off not long after the Kidderminster players and officials arrived.
The game will now be played this Monday (15 December), with a 7.45pm kick off. Obviously this is subject to weather conditions.
We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
After an 8am pitch inspection arranged by the club this morning, the pitch has been found to be in a playable condition.
However the match officials did not share the opinion of the local referee who inspected in the morning.
