 Airdrie game - Pitch Inspection 10:30 Match Off
Topic Originator: Paralex  
Date:   Tue 13 Dec 22:28

Haven`t been to Airdrie Excelsior for many years. I take it there will be a pay at the gate option. Weather permitting if course. I reckon it was a grass pitch last time I was there. Is it still grass or plastic?

It was an artificial surface the last time I was there. I think we won 2-0.

I went there around 2000 for a midweek Livy game and it was cancelled at the last minute due to freezing conditions, it wasn’t the pitch but the stairs inside that had ice and were deemed to dangerous. With snow forecast to fall on Friday onto frozen ground I am waiting to purchase my tickets.

Pitch is ok at the moment and will be getting a bit warmer for the weekend. hopefully they will make sure this game goes ahead to benefit from the large away support anticipated.

Looks like a wee bit of local knowledge there so it`s still on till it`s off and it`s not off yet.

Forecast is for the first day in 13 days above zero on Friday of 2c rain, will definitely freeze on contact to the ground much like we had on Sunday across Dunfermline, with a zero overnight forecast. So Airdrie will need to do a lot of work with salt to make the game on.

We`ve had a fair bit of snow here in Dunfermline, which is outside the BBC`s yellow warning area - Errdrie is smack bang in the middle of it. 🙁

It`s Amber for that part of the world just now but it`s due to turn to rain later.

Would be surprised if the game is off.

Yes that is true but it is also due to the weather thats caused the damage and Dundee have also requested a pitch inspection tomorrow for their game so it looks like many fixtures could be in doubt

It`s not just the pitch though is it, Correct me If I`m wrong but the area outside the ground is huge and if that`s covered in snow and cars can`t get out safely then that could cause the game to be off

Lack of info is poor, numerous games called off or inspections called for the morning, let the paying customer know the score.

Indeed - several games tomorrow need a quick decision due to travel considerations - for example Celtic at Aberdeen 12:30pm kick off.

Whether or not there is a situation will likely be decided in the morning, and as soon as there is news to impart, it will be imparted.

Hopefully 🙂

It’ll be off if anything like the underfoot conditions in Alloa which are treacherous to say the least!

Even if the pitch is playable from a fan safety perspective can’t see this bring on.

Braw. Maybe we can strengthen a bit before the rearranged game. That was a potential 0 pointer.

Wins for QoS and Montrose would be just fine today.

Unfortunately Falkirk pulled it back yesterday as that would have been our preferred option but I presume the Airdrie game will been rescheduled for the 18th Feb. Which would mean we play them back to back weekends.

The free week is the 11th, but yes I think you’re right that might be the case and would mean we play them away then home the following week.

I’d imagine this will also mean the Falkirk game will now be midweek.
