Following a pitch inspection, Mansfield Town’s Sky Bet League Two encounter at home to Forest Green Rovers has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Frost covers have been in place on the pitch since last Tuesday as part of the club’s efforts to protect the pitch from sub zero temperatures.

Frost covers - which protect the pitch up to -2 degrees - have remained on the pitch, with lighting rigs positioned on the areas which receive the least sunlight in front of the Ian Greaves Stand.

Temperatures in Mansfield, however, were as low as -3 this morning and natural sunlight has not reached the worst affected areas.

Following a 3.30pm pitch inspection by an EFL appointed referee the pitch has been deemed unplayable.

A rearranged date for the match will be announced in due course. All tickets purchased for this fixture will remain valid for the rescheduled game.
