SWINDON Town’s scheduled League Two fixture at home to Yeovil Town tomorrow has been postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

Matt Taylor was due to lead Town for the first time against the Glovers following the experienced defender’s appointment as interim manager in the wake of David Flitcroft’s sudden departure on Thursday.

However, following a pitch inspection at the Energy Check County Ground this morning, the contest has been called off because of a frozen pitch.

No date for the re-arranged fixture has yet been announced.

A statement on the club’s website read: “Swindon Town Football Club can confirm that our Sky Bet League Two fixture with Yeovil Town on Saturday has been postponed because of a frozen pitch.

“Wiltshire has been hit by adverse weather conditions and freezing temperatures all week and, as a result, the EFL arranged for a pitch inspection this morning.

“The playing surface at The Energy Check County Ground is frozen and has therefore been deemed unplayable with more bad weather forecast for the weekend.

“With conditions around the ground expected to worsen too, the safety of players', staff, supporters' and the general public was taken into consideration.

“We will inform all supporters when a new date has been arranged for this game, and we will also confirm ticket details for the new fixture as soon as we have them.”
