BURY'S League Two match at Mansfield Town has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

A planned pitch inspection was brought forward from 2pm and with standing water on the pitch the game was called off.

"Relentless rain throughout the morning has caused flooding in several areas of the pitch," said a statement released on the Mansfield Town website.

"A local referee, who visited the One Call Stadium earlier than planned to inspect the surface, has deemed it unfit for action."

It is the second time Bury's match at Mansfield has been called off this season due to a waterlogged pitch, following an earlier postponement on January 28.

Including the two games at Mansfield, the Shakers have now had their last four away matches postponed, with Saturday's game at Torquay and last month's trip to Accrington Stanley also falling foul of the weather.

New dates for the Mansfield and Torquay games are still to be announced.

Strange isn't it. We were postponed at Torquay and Mansfield beat Southend, tonight we are postponed against Mansfield and Torquay get to play Northampton.....the rain gods are not in our favour!!

Never mind, at least we will be on the boil when Bristol Rovers come to town on Saturday......I hope...:-)
