LEYTON ORIENT: Match postponed

First home game of 2021 lost to the weather

8 January 2021

United's first home game of 2021 has been lost to the weather following a week of heavy snow and dipping temperatures.

The Saturday game against Leyton Orient, due to kick off at 1pm, has been postponed following a Friday pitch inspection.

Club secretary Sarah McKnight said: "Dave Mitchell had the pitch covered as soon as it became clear that the temperature was going to plummet but, with it struggling to get above zero over the past four or five days, we've found that we haven't been able to beat the deep frost.

"With Orient travelling up today we took the decision to get a referee to look at the surface as soon as we possibly could, and it has been decided that the match will have to be postponed."

We'll have details of the rearranged fixture date as soon as they have been finalised.
