Have your say

Doncaster Rovers’ FA Cup tie at Weston Super Mare has been called off after numerous pitch inspections.

The game was axed twenty minutes ahead of kick-off after parts of the non-league Somerset club’s ground were deemed unplayable by the referee

Several hundred Rovers fans have made a wasted three and a half journey and a 400 mile round trip to the seaside resort for the first round game.

Heavy rain in the West Country overnight and this morning mean the pitch became heavily waterlogged in the lead up to the 3pm kick-off.
