Keane Disappointed By Postponement

Press Releasein Football

Town boss Roy Keane says everyone at Portman Road is disappointed after the Blues' home game against Watford was called off due to a frozen pitch. Groundsman Alan Ferguson had utilised the tent which covers the pitch and accompanying hot-air blowers in the days up to the game but freezing areas of the surface in front of the Cobbold Stand led to the late postponement.

Keane said: "As a club we are obviously disappointed. The players have done their preparation work but when I got to the ground and saw the officials on the pitch, I had an idea we might not make it.

"It's disappointing for everyone. The fans who have travelled, Fergie will have his pride at getting games on. I think that's the first one off here since 1999.
