No Go Ahead Eagles

No Go Ahead Eagles

Barnsley's clash with Crystal Palace has been postponed due to the freezing temperatures around Oakwell.

Although the Referee declared the pitch as playable, there were still concerns for the safety of spectators around the Stadium.

A statement on behalf of the club read:
'Barnsley Football Club are disappointed that, after a lot of hard work by the groundstaff, although the pitch has been deemed playable by the match referee, an inspection by the Safety Advisory Group both inside and outside the ground has prompted them to make a decision to postpone the match.

'The areas were dangerous due to the amount of snow and ice. With temperatures expected to reach minus four/five on Friday evening the situation would not get any better overnight.'

It's Barnsley's second successsive match to have been postponed after Tuesday's South Yorkshire derby with Sheffield Wednesday also fell victim to the weather.

No new date has been confirmed for either fixture.
