Yeovil Town match at Carlisle United expected to beat snow and go ahead
Yeovil Town's match at Carlisle United this afternoon is expected to go ahead.
Snow has already caused the postponement of several Football League matches in the north, but Carlisle are reporting that the Brunton Park pitch, stadium and nearby roads are currently all clear.
Carlisle United media officer Andy Hall said: "We were in early to check the situation because it did look at one point through the night that we were going to face a few problems.
"However, the snow hasn't caught and the playing surface is in good condition. There are no deposits of snow of any note on the seats or terracing, and the area around the ground is also clear.
"With that in mind we have to say that the game is not in doubt at this moment in time."
With more snow forecast to fall today, Mr Hall said the club would continue to monitor the situation.
"We do have to keep an eye on the weather as we go through the day," he said.
"There are still weather warnings in place for the region and more snow is expected. If the city was to be on the receiving end of a prolonged period of heavy snowfall then we would obviously have to review the situation as it developed.
"We would also echo the message from the authorities and ask people to take care as they travel to the game this afternoon. Please check and plan your journey accordingly because some of the areas surrounding the city have been hit quite badly."
As of 10am, two games in npower League One had been postponed - Sheffield United v Brentford and Shrewsbury Town v Oldham Athletic.
