Ricoh Arena pitch fine

Latics are optimistic tomorrow's npower League One game at Coventry City will go ahead despite today's heavy fall of snow in the Midlands.

There is undersoil heating at the Ricoh Arena and the pitch is described as playable.

Staff are clearing snow from the stands and the groundsman is staying at the stadium overnight as a precaution.

The only concern at the moment is that roads around the stadium are currently gridlocked and the snow is not forecast to stop falling until 8am Saturday.

Latics are scheduled to leave Boundary Park at 9am on Saturday.
