This afternoon’s game against Portsmouth has been postponed due to a frozen pitch

The surface at the Wham Stadium had been covered overnight due to forecast frost but referee Trevor Kettle arrived this morning to find it unplayable.

A huge effort from staff, contractors, supporters and volunteers this week to ensure that this game went ahead, from relaying drains to covering the pitch with a double layer of covers yesterday.

Accrington Stanley would like to thank everyone that has helped. We share your frustrations, and those of the travelling supporters, at the loss of another home game.

A new date for this fixture will be announced in due course
