Vale’s game against Swindon is called off

Port Vale’s game against Swindon Town on Saturday has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

Referee Simon Bennett carried out a pitch inspection at Vale Park on Saturday morning and decided that the pitch was unplayable.

Manager Rob Page told the official website: “We’re disappointed that the game has been called off today.

“We’re confident going into the New Year off the back of a 1-0 and a good performance against a strong Bury team.

“We wanted to build on that and keep the momentum going from it going into today’s game against Swindon.

“Unfortunately, the weather has got the better of us so we’ll rearrange and look forward to the next game.”
