Doncaster Rovers Game Postponed

Match Official Rob Lewis Calls Off Fixture

23 February 2021

Blackpool's Sky Bet League One fixture at home to Doncaster Rovers tonight has been postponed.

Heavy downpours in the last couple of hours led to referee Rob Lewis holding a pitch inspection at 6pm and ultimately calling the game off.  

The match official explained:

"The rain has come down heavily in the last couple of hours and unfortunately it has taken its toll on the field of play. 

"Currently as we stand here at the moment, with the rain coming down, the pitch is unplayable. There is then the risk of more rain coming through for the rest of the evening, looking at the forecasts. 

"My primary concern is the safety of the players and there is also a situation where the integrity of the game is affected by the ball not moving in its natural way."

A new date for the game will be announced in due course. All previously purchased iFollow passes will remain valid for the rearranged match.
