Tranmere Vice-Chairman Expects Town Game to Go Ahead
Wednesday, 15th Jan 2020 15:54

Tranmere vice-chairman Nicola Palios says she expects Town’s game against Rovers on Saturday to go ahead despite the current state of the Prenton Park pitch.

The condition of the waterlogged surface emerged last night in the wake of the postponement of Tranmere’s FA Cup replay against Watford.

Coupled with further rain being anticipated between now and Saturday, the Blues’ visit to Birkenhead appeared to be in significant jeopardy.

However, asked about the likelihood of the game taking place by a Town fan on Twitter, Palios was bullish about its chances of survival.

Speaking after last night’s match at Oxford, Blues boss Paul Lambert called for an early decision to be taken regarding the game so Town fans don’t have to make an unnecessary long trip.

NO DOUBT then ?
There must be guidelines for EFL and Refs ,but exceptional weather justifies exceptional use of common sense ( but that’s a rare commodity !)
We shall have to wait and see !

Reading the Huws interview, apparently Norwood is open about their pitch being absolutely terrible, so maybe it will go ahead but just be awful.

Where’s Mick when you need him?!
(Totally that’s a joke-I do not mean that for one second)
