Bradford home game postponed

9 January 2021

The Iron's home League Two clash against Bradford City has been postponed because of a frozen pitch.

An inspection was carried out by match referee David Rock just before Saturday lunchtime. Areas of the playing surface remained frozen following the weather of the last few days and the sub-zero temperatures overnight, and with the temperature not expected to rise above 2°Cthe decision was made to call the game off.

As soon as a new date for the game is arranged, we'll announce on our website and social media channels.

All iFollow match passes that have been purchased will apply for the rearranged fixture.

First team manager Neil Cox told iFollow Iron: "We're disappointed because the groundstaff and other staff have worked really hard to get the covers on, but it was really cold last night and the far end (in front of the AMS Stand) isn't playable at all so the referee has made the decision.

"The focus is now on getting ready for Tuesday night against Salford City. We'll see if we can get some kind of training into the lads today, on a 3G pitch if we can."
