Bury Manager Sticks Boot In

Flitcroft said of the decision to call off the game "To be honest, we weren’t surprised the game was postponed and had already planned a training session,”

The new Bury boss hinted that Mansfield had purposely 'roughed' the pitch up ahead of the proposed meeting between the two sides, when he said this “We heard stories that Mansfield have been training on the pitch, in a bid to rough it up and make it difficult for visiting sides. That’s their decision, but if you aren’t going to look after your pitch then there’s a good chance you will lose matches to rain.”He concluded....ouch!

He was reported to be at Saturday's game where the Stags drew 2-2 with Wycombe, before scuttling off at half time having seen enough, if only half of us were so lucky!
