Accrington game postponed

12 December 2015

Today's Sky Bet League 2 game at Accrington Stanley was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Referee Paul Tierney made the decision at 1.30pm following heavy rainfall throughout the day. Earlier inspections had deemed the pitch playable but conditions worsened, leaving puddles in many areas of the pitch.

Gareth Ainsworth said: "I'm not going to go against the referee's decision. I wanted the game on because we can battle in these conditions.

"I'm gutted but nature has had its say. I can't argue with the decision and we will now have a tough trip up here on a Tuesday night.

"Things are going against us with international call-ups and this postponement, which leaves us with a fixture pile-up."

Fans who had purchased tickets are entitled for a refund or can use their tickets to gain entry to the rearranged game.
