Blackpool Football Club can confirm that tonight’s fixture against Northampton Town has been postponed.
Ground staff have worked hard throughout the day to get the game on at Bloomfield Road, however with the forecast for rain set to continue into the evening, referee James Oldham has made the decision to call the match off following a lengthy inspection of the playing surface.
“I have been here for about 45 minutes or so now and the pitch is not improving and neither is the weather forecast,” he explained. “From just rolling the ball in the key action areas, it isn’t bouncing or travelling very well, particularly in both goalmouths. That’s behind the decision to postpone the game.”
A new date for the fixture will be arranged in due course.
