    Doubt they have even discussed it yet. Expect we have a better chance of winning games later in the season.

    We have a run of Saturday/Tuesday games throughout March starting this coming Saturday against Carlisle. Immediately followed by Easter X 2. I can well understand not wanting to add another fixture this midweek, when the alternative is midweek in April when we have only Saturday games. Add in U23's v Wolves mid'March also.

    Why are we in such a hurry play it in April when hopefully the pitch will be a better state .

    In football at Football League level you have to give 10 days notice to the authorities (mainly the police) for a rearranged match. I believe.

    I wonder how Great Western coped with the changes ? Did Avocet Line trains stop at SJP Halt yesterday after all ? And were services curtailed there today instead ?

    Sure I read Cheltenham have rearranged their game to this Tuesday.

    Why not? We’ve both had home matches on the day many a time before, why would today have been any different? Whatever, I’m with those wondering what the rush is. What’s wrong with waiting until the weather’s a bit better later on in the season, we’ve got a better chance of a decent crowd then - can’t believe it’d have been much if it was played today.

    Yes I think they have. Having another break helps anyway with Sweeney and Croll and brunt getting back to fitness. We need Sweeney with Wilson being suspended.

    Yeah agreed, I suspect it will suit us better to play fewer games on the pitch in its current state.
