The Linnets were left with another blank weekend as today's scheduled National League North fixture fell foul of incoming Storm Dennis on Saturday morning . The decision was made shortly after 9 am by club officials following consultations with the National League and other partners.
' It was, in the end , an easy decision to take ' said the club's general manager Mark Hearle. 'The predicted strong winds are now due to arrive earlier that originally thought and would have coincided with the scheduled kick off time of 3 pm. The stadium has suffered some minor structural damage and we were already seeing small tree debris being blown down from the trees that run along the back of the covered terrace stand. With that in mind, the predicted deterioration of conditions and the distance that Bradford would be travelling to reach the stadium we made the decision to postpone the game. Our main concern however was the safety of supporters not only attending the game but making their way to the ground as well. By postponing the game as early as we did hopefully we saved everyone a wasted journey. We will announce a re arranged date for the game in due course'.
Town are due back in action on Tuesday evening (7.45pm) when they visit Chester for a league fixture.
