Latics on weather watch

29 November 2012

Frost covers in place

Latics have already taken decisive action to safeguard Saturday's home FA Cup with Budweiser, second-round tie against Doncaster Rovers.

Head Groundsman Chris Bailey has been closely monitoring the weather forecast all week with an icy blast expected.

And with sub-zero temperatures predicted for last night - they plummeted to minus three - Bailey ensured frost covers were in place on the pitch.

Here Bailey and Chief Executive Neil Joy are pictured applying the key test which showed the surface is soft beneath the covers.
