MATCH OFF UPDATE: Mansfield Town v Bury postponed
BURY'S League Two match at Mansfield Town tonight has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The club invited local referee David Plowright to conduct a precautionary pitch inspection at 11am this morning following heavy overnight, which left standing water in areas of the pitch.
A statement on Mansfield Town's website said Plowright deemed the surface "unfit for use".
Groundsman Michael Merriman said: "Due to the torrential rain we had on Saturday, the pitch is absolutely wet through.
"The continued rain both overnight and this morning, along with the forecast that is predicting further heavy rain for the rest of the day, means that there was no chance this game could take place due to there being so much standing water."
A new date for the fixture is yet to be arranged.
