Millers rained off

ROTHERHAM United's match at Accrington Stanley was postponed tonight due to a waterlogged pitch.

The region had been battered by heavy rain during the day and conditions at the Crown Ground worsened considerably in the last hour before kick-off.

Referee Christopher Sarginson said: "It was an easy decision. The pitch was waterlogged and more rain was forecast and my primary concern is the safety of the players."

Mr Sarginson involved Millers assistant manager Paul Raynor and Accrington chief Paul Cook in his decision.
