    We will hold an early pitch inspection on Saturday morning to review the pitch after what we expect will be further spells of rain due across tonight and through Friday. More details are provided below.

    Following the recent postponements at Gigg Lane of both the initial Wythenshawe fixture (twice), and our game against Ramsbottom United last week (for the third time), the grounds staff started urgent remedial works to the pitch in an attempt to improve its condition.

    Across several large parts of the playing surface, water has been gathering and not draining owing to an impermeable layer which is preventing passage of surface water. This is impossible to fix without removing the turf. Continuous spells of rain, which we have had for months now, have inevitably left the surface unfit for play.

    Over the past week, the ground has been dug up in the worst areas and replacement turf has been laid to bring the pitch up to a standard suitable to play the final games of the season.

    Further heavy downpours since weekend, when the new turf was delivered, have hampered progress. The ground staff have worked around the clock to prepare the pitch in the best way possible.

    We will have the pitch inspected ahead of Saturday as early as possible to assess if the game can be played, given the continuing bad weather.

    Tickets for the South Stand and the Main Stand have sold out, and we have taken advance tickets for the Cemetery End off sale as a precaution given the risk of the game not being played. Should the game take place, we can put the tickets back on sale, with cash / card turnstiles also available for supporters looking to pay on the gate.

    We will update further on this following the results of the inspection.
