Spotland clash called off

Rochdale's League Two clash with Gillingham at the weekend has been postponed.

Local official Eddie Wolstenholme inspected the Spotland pitch on Friday morning and although 75 per cent of the surface was playable, the remaining sections were frozen.

In light of Gillingham's long trip to the north west and a forecasted drop in temperatures overnight, the decision was taken to call the match off.

Rochdale will announce a re-arranged date for the fixture in the near future.
