THIS weather doesn’t half know how to interrupt the football! When the snow started to fall a few weeks ago, Football League clubs up and down the country feared the worst.

Inches of snow. Frozen pitches. Treacherous walking conditions around the grounds. Roads simply not safe enough to drive on.

All factors of getting a game called off, as at the end of the day it isn’t just those ‘nancys’ running around kicking a ball that could get hurt it, is the travelling supporters aswel. And some seem to forget that.

Last weekend the country returned to normality with games getting the go ahead as the thaw kicked in as temperatures rose.

But now we are taking five steps back, as the snow once again looks set to fall in East Lancashire later on this week.

There is a chance that Accrington could see the white stuff once again on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures dropping as low as -10.

And with Burton Albion set to roll up at The Crown Ground to face The Reds on Saturday, Stanley’s fixtures could once again fall foul of nature.

Temperatures well into the minuses on Friday evening will almost certainly freeze the playing surface at Accrington, but this is the worst part as the temperatures will once again remain in the minuses even throughout the day on Saturday giving the pitch no thawing chance.

Vital Stanley as always will keep you up to date with any developments, but we recommend you keep an eye on the weather!
