Football League Statement

4 May 2015

League Provides Blackpool-Huddersfield Update

The Football League has tonight issued the following statement regarding Saturday's abandoned fixture against Huddersfield Town:

The Football League can confirm that Blackpool and Huddersfield Town will not be required to finish or re-play their Sky Bet Championship fixture that was abandoned after 48 minutes on Saturday.

Having considered all of the relevant matters, it was felt that asking the two clubs to play the match again would serve no justifiable purpose given the nature of Saturday's events and seeing as its result has no bearing on promotion or relegation issues.

The Board of The Football League will consider the result of the match, and any other matters relating to it that are within its remit, at its next meeting on May 14. In doing so, it will take into the account the observations of both clubs.

Any matters relating to crowd behaviour will be considered by the Football Association.
