Trophy game has ‘good chance’ for Tuesday

WORKSOP Town may finally get the opportunity to take on Mansfield Town in the FA Trophy, on Tuesday night.

The game was scheduled to be played on Saturday at Ilkeston’s New Manor Ground, but a frozen pitch forced its postponement.

But Ilkeston secretary Keith Burnand told the Guardian this morning: “Our chairman was down there this morning and he says there’s a good chance of getting the game on tomorrow night.”

“Most of the snow has melted.”

It is believed a local referee will inspect the pitch later today, and again tomorrow, before a decision is made on whether or not it goes ahead.

The game, if played, will kick off at 7.45pm, and it is a ‘pay on the day’ affair, with no tickets necessary.
