Fans of Oldham Athletic are being encouraged to help ground staff clear the pitch of snow and ice ahead of today's game with Morecambe.

Yesterday volunteers and players joined Head Groundsman Paul Flynn, and his team and made great strides in making sure the game goes ahead.

Now the club are asking for one last final push to ensure the Boundary Park pitch is ready for kick off.

Volunteers should arrive at the stadium at 9am and you're being advised to wear appropriate clothing.

Those who help will be entitled to one free match ticket for the game.

The referee Carl Boyeson will hold a pitch inspection at 10:30am this morning before taking a decision on whether the match goes ahead.
