Michael Jolley has admitted his frustration but tried to concentrate on the positives after Saturday’s game against Exeter City was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

After overseeing an encouraging performance against Tranmere Rovers during his first game in charge on Tuesday, the new boss was keen to build on the good things he saw during the 1-1 draw.

However, freezing temperatures have left the pitch unplayable at The Progression Solicitors Stadium and the weekend fixture was postponed following an inspection on Friday afternoon.

“It’s frustrating because obviously we wanted to keep our momentum going as we’re on a good little mini run at the moment,” Jolley explained.

“We’re three unbeaten and have taken seven points from nine so we were looking forward to another home game and a big challenge against a good team.

“It is what it is though, and we just have to get on with it, and what it does do is give us a bit more time to prepare for what is a massive game next week.

“As well as that, I am only a week in the building and we’re going to have to make some quick calls on all of our existing squad in terms of which ones we want to go forward with.

“The games obviously help with that, but this now enables us to take a breath and a moment to assess exactly where we’re at.”
