Southport FC’s match tonight against Blyth Spartans is ON, as the Sandgrounders continue their push for promotion to the National League.
The game kicks off at 7.45pm with tickets on sale HERE.
It is great news for Yellows supporters, who saw the weekend’s fixture against Leamington called off due to horrendous weather caused by Storm Eunice – one of just three storms in the past week!
The Sandgrounders currently sit sixth in the National League North table, with 44 points from 26 games – just one point behind Chorley and three behind AFC Fylde – as they look to cement their play-off place.
A Southport FC spokesperson said: “Despite the early morning rain and occasional shower the pitch has dried out well and our game against Blyth Spartans is on tonight.
“The forecast is good for the rest of the afternoon and we are good to go.
“Tickets are on sale HERE. Programmes HERE.
“The decision to call off the game against Leamington early proved absolutely spot on as the predicted heavy rain came and coupled with the snow left the pitch unplayable. If the game had been played the Blyth game would have stood no chance as the pitch would have been badly damaged.
“Some clubs chose to delay call offs which is always a gamble and it failed as supporters had travelled many miles only to find the game off.
“Our attention turns to Tuesday and the visit of Blyth.
“The blank Saturday will have given the lads who were carrying knocks from Tuesday that extra couple of days to recover.
“Blyth also had a blank Saturday with their game at Guiseley also falling foul of the weather.
“Blyth Form Line shows that following our win at Croft Park in December they went on to win home games against Spennymoor and Gateshead. The last four matches have ended in defeat and they arrive here in 18th place. Last time out they lost 2-1 at home to Kettering.
“In Robbie Dale they have a player who knows how to score against Southport and there is plenty of experience in the squad.”
