Light sleet now by the ground. Appears to be easing off. Nothing stuck snow wise.

It's 0.5 degrees C. Watching a match won't be much fun. Glad I haven't got to play in one.

Dawn should sell plenty of Bovril tonight.

For me, the quantity of snow going on the pitch is the concern, not whether it is sticking or not. Whilst it sticking would be a bigger problem, the level of water falling on to an already sodden pitch puts this game in serious doubt in my opinion.

Hopefully it will go ahead but not so keen if the pitch condition is going to be a big hinderence to our playing style.

Wow, snowing again, thought it was clearing up. I note the pitch covers were not on at lunchtime.

Are you sure they weren't? I was informed they have been on since Saturday, just re-positioned once or twice to cover different areas.

I've just uploaded an image of the pitch from the gantry: https://twitter.com/altrinchamfc/status/960914571081994240

Notably, if you zoom into the goalmouth it doesn't look anywhere near as bad now. I believe it has been sanded.

They were on the right flank (the worst bit) at about 1pm

Sorry, I looked through the gate at the Moss lane corner by the allotments and could see no covers. If elsewhere then great.

One of our better performances for the first 80 minutes tonight, I thought we totally dominated the game. Given recent strong performances, from Warrington and Witton, I thought Ashton were pretty poor in comparison.
Great contributions from Hampson on the wing, Hancock looked sharp, James Poole played well and Harrop was deservedly man of the match.
We just lost our way after the substitutions, we missed Hulme up front and Hampson wide left, although you coule see what PP was trying to do, 3-0 up with 10 minutes to play.

Agreed. Jones was very good again until his injury. Fell apart with Jones and Moult off. How good is Hampson at left back? and Harrop,his energy and vision is excellent.
I hope it is nothing serious for Jones.
Next Tuesday against Shaw Lane is huge.
The pitch was better than I expected.

Firstly massive well done to the ground staff for the pitch. 10 times better than i was expecting. Still no bounce in some areas but playable.

Started really sharp and should have been home and hosed at ht. As stated lost our way after Jones and Moult went off. Desperately need Jones or Hannigan back for Saturday.

Told you all Richman should have started instead of Harrop!!

3 points is what matters, and they didn't score from open play.

I'd gone to this game expecting Ashton to score and I'd rather they got that goal from the free kick right at the end rather than one of those they had in the first half. They allowed Altrincham too much space to get forward, and their goal keeper surely wasn't their first choice. He was awful from the moment he dropped the ball over the line for a corner at the start. You got the feeling the Altrincham players smelled blood after that.

What was Thompson so steamed up about after their penalty?
