Tonight’s game against Exeter City has been postponed after a final pitch inspection carried out at The Progression Solicitors Stadium.
Ground staff and volunteers worked tirelessly on Monday to cover the pitch and sourced heaters in an attempt to ensure the pitch remained playable for this evening’s meeting with The Grecians.
Referee, Ross Joyce, inspected the pitch upon arrival at 4pm and was happy to press ahead with plans to play the game but remained in consultation with both clubs and both Managers.
However, as the temperature dropped, concerns rose about the safety of some areas of the playing surface and, after more discussions between all parties, the decision was taken to postpone the game.
We will bring you details for a new date as soon as they are confirmed.
