Gazette: U's to stage pitch inspection U's to stage pitch inspection

Colchester United will stage a pitch inspection at 8.30am tomorrow to see whether or not their home game against Rotherham United will go ahead.

Brendan Malone, who is due to referee the League One clash, will inspect the Weston Homes Community Stadium surface, with the U's hoping to avoid another postponement.

Colchester have covered their pitch with waterproof sheets in a bid to boost the chances of the game going ahead and are doing everything they can to ensure the match takes place.

Joe Dunne's side have not played since beating Carlisle United 4-2, on January 18.

According to a weather forecaster at lunch time, it seems these storms are to continue to roll in over the next two weeks at least. It's a shame that we didn't bite the bullet sooner to get in the protective covers as the damage would appear to have already been done. With the water table so high, the pitch will take a sustained period without rain before it can dry out.
