Issue Burton Albion game off

As told by Michael Wood

City’s game with Burton Albion has been called off after the Referee decided the pitch was dangerous following yesterday’s sharp frost and thaw.

The game was called off after one thirty on Saturday leaving Burton Albion fans in Bradford for an afternoon – try the National Media Museum vistors from the Trent – and City facing a blank weekend before the trip to Crewe on Tuesday night and and Saturday at Chesterfield.

City’s next game at Valley Parade will be the home match with Lincoln City on Tuesday, 1 February 2011.

Speaking about the call off BfB reader and professional groundsman of 37 years Tony Kenny remarked

The overnight temperature over the last week was -4 degrees, the covers at Valley Parade should be ok for -7 if there was any danger of problems, yesterday, a local referee should have been brought in give an opinion at 9.00 pm Saturday. Burton travelled, many fans set off and the game was called two hours before the kick off, this is totally unacceptable.
