❌ GAME OFF ❌

Tonight’s game has unfortunately been postponed due to a frozen pitch.#WeAreSalford 🦁🔴

Fans reacted after seeing that several EFL games have been postponed, see what they had to say below...

TO BOLTON'S TWEET:

@jack_w03: At least no bolton fan will experience the losing feeling at 22:00 tonight

@angrydwarf9: I'm still gonna check my twitter feed 3 minutes past kick off and I bet we are 1 down

@bwfc2019 :Thank god for that at least we won’t lose I won’t be in a bad mood for rest of the week until Saturday

@nathjnzy: Well at least we won’t lose

@ZakBWFC_: tinpot bastards

TO MANSFIELD'S TWEET:

@VSFDaniel123: How embarrassing is our pitch im sorry but wtf

@arron_mather: Not being funny, how the fuck is it frozen

@youngjby: Basically mate it’s been really cold meaning the grass has frozen over…

@Dannyjbirco: Not sure if ref knows but kick offs not for another 5 n half hours

@MtfcAlfie_: Ffs thanks a lot

@bwfcbrian: Joke of a club can’t even keep ur pitch warm

TO NEWPORT AND CARLISLE'S TWEET:

@RobMorley_: Tinpot AGAIN. Scared to play the blues

@laurabarr38: Not surprised always been an awful pitch, they didnt want the mighty blues to win #cufc

@RokerPark150705: Disappointing... The 'games in hand' are mounting up for Carlisle and I fear this will merely heap unwanted pressure on Chris Beech's team when those games are eventually played...

@kriscufc: I honestly give up

@NBD69: Surely this could have been called yesterday? We must have already traveled? 2 Newport players suspended. A dreadful pitch, can’t be EFL standard, should have to play at Cardiff/Millennium until theirs is sorted out!? We’ll still be playing games in June at this rate!

@josephscott2005: They’re too scared Everyone they can’t handle us

@rhyswjenkins1: Will we ever have a match again, getting silly now this

@LEEROTHERHAM: Waterlogged? There is frost on the covers! Looks and engineered decision.

@afcgxs: Just play it at the millennium
