Tonight's match between Bristol City and Charlton Athletic will go ahead. The pitch has been covered since Saturday and there has been relatively little snow in Bristol (they had a centimetre in the Isles of Scilly yesterday and parents still phoned up to see if the island school would be closed).
The Football League is insistent that the match goes ahead, regardless of any travelling difficulties that fans might encounter - the Addickted contingent is likely to be more depleted than it might otherwise be. Referee Kevin Friend inspected the pitch at 1 p.m. after the covers had been removed and deemed it playable.
The team was unable to train before they left for the west country yesterday, but given the amount of benefit they appear to derive from their training this might be no great loss.
