The Spurs boss complained about the state of the pitch, at least in terms of pictures and video, before his club’s trip to the Spotland Stadium, but a weather-related cancellation on Saturday will allow Rochdale to relay the turf.

Saying the decision will allow Rochdale its best chance against Spurs, Rochdale apologized to fans who expected to watch the Dale entertain Fleetwood Town. From Rochdaleafc.co.uk:

We have been in communication with contractors throughout the week and preparatory work had taken place prior to the scheduled Fleetwood fixture in the eventuality that the game should fall foul of the weather. Plans will now be put into action immediately.
