Northampton Town-Rochdale abandoned due to waterlogged pitch

Chris Wilder's first game in charge of Northampton Town is postponed because of a waterlogged pitch at Sixfields.

Chris Wilder's first game in charge of Northampton Town will not be tonight after the League Two affair at home to Rochdale was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch at Sixfields.

Wilder was appointed as the Cobblers' new boss yesterday and will now have extra time to work with his squad before they next play at Cheltenham Town on Saturday.

A statement from Northampton today read: "The Football League asked local referee Andy Woolmer to check the conditions and he ruled the pitch unplayable.

"The recent heavy rain has left the pitch waterlogged, with the high water table causing drainage problems."

It is the second League Two game abandoned tonight after Mansfield Town and Bury's match at the One Call Stadium also fell foul of the weather.
