Covid has certainly compressed the season, but Newport, Barrow and Harrogate were all p-p due to weather, whilst the original Bolton fixture was p-p due to our involvement in the FA Cup.
While the weather hasn't helped the late start due to Covid meant the season was already condensed. In an ordinary season we could cope with these postponements and still have a manageable schedule; instead we are looking at playing two matches a week every week for nearly four months which is surely unprecedented.

This morning’s forecast is for the temperature to be between seven and nine degrees at 3:00 this afternoon in the north of England. It used to be you couldn’t get promoted to the league if your ground wasn’t up to scratch, perhaps it also ought to include what your provisions are for poor weather conditions too - we had the pitch covered last week to ensure the FA Cup game went ahead, perhaps these two bit sides - Accrington, Barrow, Newport, Harrogate - should be doing more as it seems too easy to call games off at the moment.

Frozen pitch my arse.

BBC Devon Sport have just said they're offering live coverage of the Argyle game, against Exeter at 3pm :p I think they mean Crewe!

Not surprised the game was called off having seen several pics of the snow in Yorkshire. It's cold here, but more so across the Pennines.
