WIGAN GAME IN DOUBT

WIGAN GAME IN DOUBT

It appears that the away game at DW Stadium v Wigan tomorrow is now in serious doubt after it transpired their undersoil heating broke at 5pm tonight.

There is a pitch inspection tomorrow morning at 8:30 after which a decision will be made.

As WH said in our forum, 'Pitch Inspection at 8.30am tomorrow when the Referee inspects the pitch......got no chance with temperatures as low as -10 expected.'

Must admit, I was surprised with the state of the roads and the bad weather forecast that the decision was to hold the game in the first place, surely for the safety of fans all games should have been called off this weekend?

What a kerfuffle.

Thanks to Mat Kendrick of the Mail texting me a warning also, the more fans that can be made aware of this before some set off without realising, the better, so spread the word.

This is the type of weather where we will accumulate more injuries so it's probably not a bad thing to play less games during the harshest times and as Mr Fear says it would be Terrible if anybody got injured (or worse) traveling to or from the game .
