Match Off

Tonight's match at Hillsborough is off.

From www.swfc.co.uk:


Sheffield Wednesday have postponed tonight's fixture against Barnsley due to potentially treacherous conditions surrounding Hillsborough stadium.

While the pitch would have been playable tonight the club have decided after in-depth discussions with South Yorkshire Police to postpone the match due to public safety concerns.

Sheffield Wednesday chairman, Lee Strafford, said: "As a club we were confident of staging this game and we know that many people across South Yorkshire wanted to come to this match.

"However, the approach roads to Hillsborough and pathways surrounding the ground are very icy and with further sub zero temperatures forecast for the remainder of today the conditions certainly do not look likely to improve.

"Obviously we only want people to come and enjoy matches at our stadium but when we cannot guarantee peoples' safety coming to the game we have to act responsibly and make the right decision in postponing the fixture."


Sheffield Wednesday will update fans on a rearranged fixture once a date is agreed with Barnsley.

Its good news for us having this and the palace game called off, we might get a few more injury hit players back like Bogdanovic and Foster, we'll need them for the second double of the season!!
