BLACKPOOL GAME POSTPONED

Match called off because of waterlogged pitch

19 January 2021

Northampton Town's Sky Bet League 1 game at Blackpool on Tuesday night was postponed.

The match referee James Oldham checked conditions on his arrival at Bloomfield Road and after a day of heavy rain, declared the match postponed just before 5.30pm.

“I have been here for about 45 minutes or so now and the pitch is not improving and neither is the weather forecast,” he explained. “From just rolling the ball in the key action areas, it isn’t bouncing or travelling very well, particularly in both goalmouths. That’s behind the decision to postpone the game.”

A new date for the game will be confirmed in due course.

Any iFollow match passes purchased for the game will automatically be valid for the re-arranged game.
