MANSFIELD Town’s game at Hereford United tonight has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
A local referee said the pitch was playable first thing today but, with further rain forcecast, a decision was left until 2pm when the match referee, who had to travel up from Plymouth, arrived to find the surface waterlogged and called the game off.
The Mansfield Town team at least hadn’t left the One Call Stadium, waiting on the inspection before setting out.
But the postponement further lengthens Stags’ backlog of games with no further free midweek dates to play it until April.
