Today's game against Shaw Lane has been postponed due to the pitch being deemed unplayable by the match referee, who carried out an inspection at 10am.

It was but the snow has been forecasted for over a week so should have been borrowed or we need to buy some.

The club has frost covers that will cover part of the pitch but not all of it.

With no Manchester city or united playing, today could have been an excellent money maker for the club.

I sincerely hope we looked into borrowing covers to get a top of the table clash on. paid or otherwise.

A real shame as I think wise the club has lost a lot of cash on this one being off today. As others have said clarification on pitch covers given the forecast would be good.

It wasn't just down to the snow, which obviously was a contributing factor, but the pitch was waterlogged from the rain over the past few days.

The ball wasn't bouncing an inch at times during the inspection

How is Heywood Road hosting a game today if the weather's been so poor?

Interesting to see on twitter that shaw lane could have been missing up to 6 key players today.

Maybe their ref had a different opinion of their pitch than the one who did Moss Lane.
