Pitch Passes Second Inspection
Pitch Passes Second Inspection
Saturday, 11th Feb 2012 13:54

Town have announced that the Portman Road surface has passed the second pitch inspection and the game against Middlesbrough goes ahead.

Temperatures dropped as low as -13° overnight in Ipswich but the covers had been on all week with the heated blowers also in use. A first inspection was held at 11.15am when the pitch was deemed fine but for one section by the Cobbold Stand, leading to the second inspection.

Meanwhile, the decision to call off the Peterborough-West Ham game means that if it goes ahead, Town's match will be shown live in various places overseas.

Full match preview here.

thank goodness for that, would have been especially harsh on people making the trip down from middlesborough to call it off at such short notice.

hoping for another reason to smile today, 3 points!! COYB

Sorry but should neve have been left so late especially for those coming from Boro.

Come on Town you can protect the pitch better than you have done this week surely!

Whilst I would have been annoyed, I'm sat in the riverside pub full of boro fans, would have been funny to watch the reaction as the news filtered round!

Oh dear what a mess - to abandon the game part way through. Some serious questions need to be asked!

Shambles. Joke. Heads should roll, including the referee

blue added 15:59 - Feb 11
IPSWICH SUPPORTER this is a mockery for those boro fans , they should get big compensation for this absolute shambles.Let you know when we play again only if we beat you though :)

Why leave it so late before an inspection? It's not as if Middlesbrough is just round the corner is it. Should of been decided either early doors this morning to save them all the hassle of travelling or yesterday. It was never gonna get to the stage of a big thaw today so the earlier the better for ALL the fans involved.
