Postponement frustrates Trollope

Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope has said he was disappointed that Tuesday's League One clash at Crewe was postponed because of a frozen pitch. Freezing temperatures meant the game at the Alexandra Stadium was called off after a pitch inspection at 0930 GMT. "We've had nine days without a game and we were looking forward to this one," Trollope told the club's website. "When you prepare and have done all the work it's very disappointing when the game is called off." Trollope also admitted that the Pirates' game at home to Yeovil on Saturday may also be threatened by the cold weather. "There has to be a question mark over the Yeovil game but we will prepare as if it's going ahead," he said. "We remain hopeful, because we don't want too long without a game. "We will assess what training we can do over the next few days, because the players can only do so much on an indoor surface," he added.
