Yeovil's clash with Crawley falls foul of the weather

Yeovil's home League Two fixture against Crawley on Tuesday night has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Huish Park surface underwent an inspection in the morning with the managers of both clubs present and it was agreed the match could not go ahead.

A statement on Yeovil's official website said: "Somerset has bore the brunt of Storm Angus over the last few days, resulting in standing water on the centre circle and at the far end of the pitch towards the Radio Cabs Away End.

"With further rain forecast from four o'clock this afternoon and the pitch already saturated and unable to take on more water, the decision has been made to postpone the fixture to avoid unnecessary inconvenience to supporters, staff and officials for the clubs.

"Both Town manager Darren Way and Crawley boss Dermot Drummy were present and happy with the decision."

A new date has yet to be arranged for the game.
