Southend United midfielder Craig Easton is full of sympathy for the travelling faithful who were told the game was called off at Accrington Stanley just 90 minutes before the kick-off!
Easton: 'We have to go and prepare for Wycombe Wanderers now'
Waterlogged pitch after heavy overnight rain and nobody at Accrington thought bringing in an official until lunchtime was maybe leaving it a bit late.
Not good at all, especially after such a long journey, a goalless draw between Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle that many went on to catch was scant compensation for such a wasted journey.
Still, the Shrimpers skipper Craig Easton tried to share their pain as well as focusing on the next game, the world of League Two football moves on quickly, a vital clash at Roots Hall against the third placed Chairboys on Tuesday evening.
Captain Craig told www.echo-news.co.uk: "We have to go and prepare for that now and hope that may be we will go in to that match slightly fresher now, but it is very annoying. It's the fans I feel sorry for most because they have paid good money to come up here and see the game and it just isn't fair on them. There is nothing we can do about it though and we just have to get on with it the best we can."
