Bury manager David Flitcroft says that the referee made the "right call" in postponing his side's League Two clash against Accrington Stanley today.

Bury manager David Flitcroft has no complaints with the referee's decision to postpone his side's match against Accrington Stanley at the Crown Ground.

The League Two clash was called-off due to a waterlogged pitch around 45 minutes before the due kickoff time, though Flitcroft reckons the referee had only one choice.

"It was absolutely the right call by the referee," he told the Bury Times. "He thought long and hard about it. He's got an assessor here and I think they have consulted as a committee and the referee has made the final decision, which I thought was absolutely spot on.

"He left it as late as he could, until 2.15pm, but we've been on the pitch and you could see the ball was not running true. He's got it right."

A new date for the fixture will be set in the coming days.
