    A bit gutted, but understandable

    Pigs game at Brizzle is apparently on, so we could see them move back above us on Saturday

    If they do, there will at least will be a small consolation. Lets hope the others down at the bottom pick up points

    Thought you meant pigs could move above us then. Maybe if they got 19pts for one of their nil nil wins.

    Pretty relaxed with it myself. It could do us a favour fitness wise and it'd definitely have affected the gate if things don't clear up more.

    I'd rather the game was called off then attempt to play in this.
    We remember all too well what happened last time we played Burton, and that was in good conditions.

    The only downside is we will probably be out of the play off places when we visit Fulham and some of the other clubs might be a bit closer to us as well.

    If we lose on Tuesday night many teams will have had the opportunity to gain 6 points on us, pushing us down to mid table

    Tuesday nights football that might affect us, other than our own game of course.
    Middlesboro away at Birmingham
    Brentford away at Burton
    Cardiff at home to Barnsley
    Derby away to QPR
    Villa away at Sunderland
    Preston at home to Bristol

    I can't see many favourable results coming out of that lot for us, so assuming one or two teams pick up three points on Saturday with us not playing the pressure is on at Fulham

    Considering the age of the average English football fan is about 65 it's an inspired decision to call this one off....

    Damned if they do damned if they don't fans have been contacting the club through social media asking for an early decision cos not everyone goin can hop on a bus or tram to get there or for the lucky few be able to walk it,sensible decision bearing in mind the forecast,there's no way a full program will be completed on sat many games will bite the dust some at the last minute at least we know where we stand I pity the away fans that will make a wasted trip been there done that it's not a good feeling

    I agree Bully,it makes sense to call it off early.The furthest i've travelled for a postponed game was Plymouth,we were stoppin in Torquay for the weekend and got to Home Park to be told the match was off,we headed back to Torquay for a afternoon sesh.UTCB

    Well with the season Burton are having and our own injury list, i think this plan suits us.Must say with us only being a hour down the road travelling for away supporters is not a problem,and Thursday a bit premature .Anyway Fulham a big game for you.and Burton 3 points in the bag .Sat will tell us if the weather prevented the game .And we still have a date at Bramall lane to look forward to .We enjoyed Hillsborough ,in fact you enjoyed our time there .Apart from the replay good luck for the rest of the season.
