Jackett Agrees With Ref's Decision

Jackett Agrees With Ref's Decision

Despite his dissapointed, Kenny Jackett says he agreed with the referee's decision to postpone last night's game at Rotherham.

The game was given the go-ahead at 4:30pm following a pitch inspection but another one was carried out at 6:30pm after a sudden drop in temperature.

The referee commented on his decision and said: 'I had no choice but to call the game off,'

'At 4 o'clock we had a pitch inspection and both managers were happy with the state of the pitch and I gave the pitch as playable.

'But the temperature, unexpectedly, dropped dramatically at 6.30 and we had another pitch inspection and because of player safety I had to call the game off.

'And I am sure, that neither manager would have liked it if they had lost a goal to a slip.'


Jackett said: 'It's extremely disappointing because we've travelled a long way and so have quite a number of our supporters,'

'But I've got to say I thought the referee made the right decision. We were here at 4pm and it was playable, but things altered dramatically after that.

'The whole of one of the goalmouths and the area around it was bone-hard, like concrete, whereas the rest of the pitch was in perfect condition.

they don't care about the fans, the home clubs should be made responsible for expenses for the away club they would soon get the decisions made earlier then!
