Freezing fog foils Fulham fixture

30 December 2016

Match postponed after half time at the Madejski

Regretfully, our home fixture against Fulham this evening has been abandoned due to adverse weather conditions at Madejski Stadium.

Referee James Linington assessed the foggy conditions on arrival at the stadium in the late afternoon and conditions were rightly deemed playable.

However, shortly after kick-off on a bitterly cold night, the fog swiftly worsened inside the bowl and twice during the latter stages of the first half the referee and his fourth official consulted with the two managers on the touchlines.

The teams went in goalless at half-time, but following a further consultation the decision was made by the match officials by the that conditions had deteriorated to such an extent that the match was unable to continue.

Further information regarding details of a rearrangement of the fixture will follow in due course.
