Tonight our reserves are scheduled to play a reserve game there against Rochdale and the latest news from the Fraser Eagle is that there should be no problems unless there is further heavy rain today and at this time no pitch inspection is planned.

Should the game go ahead it will be our first game in the Pontin's League for five weeks, since the 3-2 defeat to Manchester City, also at the Fraser Eagle. The two previous games scheduled since the New Year have both been postponed.

The Clarets go into the game in fifth place in what is a tight league. Carlisle and Tranmere, both of whom won last night, are one point behind us whilst Blackpool, Chester and Morecambe all have one point more. Opponents Rochdale meanwhile are currently bottom with just two wins from eleven games. Kick off will be at 7:00 p.m. should the game go ahead.
