Minstermen get their way

York City got their way over their rescheduled play-off semi-final against Fleetwood Town at Bootham Crescent.

"I wanted the Monday to give us an extra day's recovery towards the game on the Friday" - Nigel Worthington
Heavy rain and a waterlogged pitch put paid to the original date on Saturday night despite strenuous efforts by the club to counteract the elements.

The Minstermen then got their preferred date of this evening (kick-off 7.45pm) for the re-arranged tie, which is being televised live by Sky Sports 2. Opponents Fleetwood had actually favoured Tuesday, just three days ahead of the return leg at the Highbury Stadium.

"I wanted the Monday to give us an extra day's recovery towards the game on the Friday," York manager Nigel Worthington told the Yorkshire Post. "Plus, we are the home team with a full house and the Football League have made a sensible decision on that one.

"Both clubs wanted a quick decision on it," he added. "Fleetwood wanted the game on a Tuesday night, we held firm for the Monday night and the Football League made the decision for the Monday."

York were reporting their pitch to be in good condition on Monday morning, although there is more rain forecast later today. A verti-drain machine has therefore been hired to help drain off any excess water.
