We can today confirm that tomorrow's fixture against Newport County has been postponed due to the current weather conditions.
Unfortunately, overnight, temperatures dropped to -5 degrees and the full ground froze over, including the water pipes.
The club were optimistic about the pitch yesterday, as temperatures reached 3 degrees and we had a slight thaw. However, the forecasted temperature of 2 to 3 degrees today and tomorrow isn't quite enough to make the surface playable.
Ross Joyce, the Premier League referee, attended the club to inspect the pitch at 11am this morning, and has confirmed the surface is unplayable. They've also confirmed that it's unlikely to improve given the forecasted temperatures.
Tickets bought for the game are valid for the rearranged fixture or, alternatively, refunds will be available from Monday.
The date of the rearranged fixture will be announced in due course.
The club shop will be open from 11am to 3pm on Saturday for your last-minute Christmas gifts, and we are offering 30% off all items for fans that present their Newport match ticket or season ticket (in-store only). This includes a wide range of accessories, as well as replica, training, and leisure kits.
