Rovers' match against Wigan postponed

Bristol Rovers were due to take on Wigan Athletic

Bristol Rovers' match against Wigan Athletic at home tonight (Tues 27th) has been postponed due to a frozen pitch at the Memorial Stadium.

The decision was taken by the match referee following a pitch inspection at at around 12pm today.

The pitch was covered after Saturday's fixture against Scunthorpe but the club says "the persistent sub-zero temperatures meant that the pitch would have frozen once the covers had been removed, with the decision taken with the safety of players and spectators in mind."

A new date for the fixture has yet to be announced but tickets will still be valid, and those who can't make it are entitled to a refund.
