Another inspection planned for 1pm
Latics' npower League One match at Notts County tonight is due to go ahead as planned following a 10am pitch inspection.
However, match official Phil Joslin, who conducted the inspection, will take a further look at the pitch at 1pm and, if there is any change, we will announce it as soon as possible.
The frost covers had been put back on the Meadow Lane pitch immediately after Saturday’s game thanks to the help of supporters who stayed behind to assist the groundstaff and that hard work seems to have paid off.
Despite further freezing temperatures overnight and into the morning, the pitch has stood up remarkably well and has been passed fit to go ahead as scheduled.
Having beaten the wintery weather to get Saturday’s game against Sheffield United on as planned, Notts faced further snow and frost over the weekend and made the decision to call an early inspection to test the condition of the pitch.
