MATCH POSTPONED DUE TO WATERLOGGED PITCH
Town travel to Burgess Hill today, but the weather could have a big say in events. The Burgess Hill pitch has already suffered a couple of postponements this season and was being worked on yesterday to try and get this game on. However with heavy rain forecast in the Burgess Hill area over night and most of this morning supporters are advised to keep checking the website for updates. A pitch inspection is planned for 11am, which is the earliest it could be arranged, and we will update the website as soon as possible with any news. But for anyone intending to start their journey to the Green Elephant stadium earlier, you are advised to check for updates during your travels.
The Hillians are currently mired in the relegation zone having suffered a decline in form over the season. Five straight defeats in the league since early December have not helped matters. Town should not be misled by this though. They have three games in hand to catch the teams above them and slip the noose yet. A sign that they won't go quietly is the recent loan signings of Connor Tighe and Stephane Ngamvoulou. Both players have found the net since joining, with Tighe scoring in both games since signing from Whitehawk. Although they have yet to secure any points it's only a matter of time.
Town will need to keep their wits about them on what could be a heavy pitch if this one goes ahead.
