Iron boss - postponement was the right decision

Date published: 08 February 2021

Scunthorpe boss Neil Cox agreed with referee Mark Edwards' decision to call off Saturday's League Two clash against Latics at Glanford Park just two hours before kick-off.

“It was the right decision,” Iron boss Cox told his club’s website.

“The pitch was unplayable and we have had a lot of bad weather over the previous couple of days.

“It hasn’t changed and the rain was still coming down."

Latics are back in action this Saturday when they host high-flying Exeter City.
