No change of special guest or referee

Last updated : 19 March 2002 By Tony Scholes

The special guest at the third time of asking is Billy Ingham who was with us on New Year's Day and then a month ago as the game was postponed on both occasions.

Billy will hopefully be able to get out onto the pitch at half time this time to make the Golden Gamble draw.

Read our article on Billy Ingham from last month.

We have the same referee who has twice decided the Turf Moor pitch as unfit and he is Tony Bates from Stoke-on-Trent. Hopefully this time he will allow the game to go ahead.

He has had an unspectacular month since the last postponement and has issued just three yellow cards in four games.
