ROTHERHAM United are to complain to the Football League following their latest postponement - the club’s third of the season.

Paul Douglas, Rotherham’s Chief Operating Officer, admitted he was angry at the way Bristol Rovers handled matters on Saturday morning, accusing them of failing to adhere strictly to the procedure set down by the Football League when bad weather is threatening a game.

“I’m raising it with the Football League because there is a process clubs must follow to keep people informed yet the first anyone knew was when it was called off around 12,” said Douglas.

“The League insist travelling fans must be kept informed but ours weren’t and it’s not good enough.”

Rotherham are now preparing for a New York Stadium sell-out for the big Boxing Day clash with second-placed Port Vale.

A win for the Millers would put them level on points with Vale who also fell victim of the weekend rain at home against Wimbledon.
