At 1pm today the Shaymen were notified by Calderdale Council that the pitch was not fit to be played on.

 

Subsequently a soil specialist has been called in to mitigate any potential serious problems with the grass and work with the Council to provide a longer-term solution.

 

Gary Byrnes, the head of Calderdale Council`s sports services, said: ''We really appreciate the club`s efforts to change the fixture to protect the playing surface and we understand it's a huge inconvenience to all concerned. This will now allow my team to work tirelessly on the pitch to ensure its fit purpose and to the standard it needs to be for professional Football."  

 

Both clubs were still keen to play the fixture, and with this is mind Doncaster kindly agreed to allow the game to be played behind closed doors at their training ground tomorrow evening
