Motherwell v Dundee United - GAME OFF

29 January 2013 05:58
Tuesday's match at Fir Park has been postponed following an second inspection that determined that the pitch was waterlogged. The club had the foresight to invite an early inspection to reduce the disruption to fans.

Lanarkshire has been saturated in the last few days and the pitch succumbed to the soaking.  Such cancellations used to be routine at Motherwell but since a major renovation some years ago we have been freed from the frequent embarrassments.

The game against Dundee United was originally scheduled for Wednesday (30th) but less than a fortnight ago the clubs agreed to bring it forward by 24 hours.

Tuesday's rain is driven on by a strong wind and even if the game had  gone ahead it's entertainment value would have been greatly reduced because of the weather.  

Have your say on the messageboard.
