Once they're past junction 9 they should be in the clear, and only an 1h30 or 1h45 away. Rather a slightly delayed kick off than a postponement.

Although when you bring the potential fog into it...

Travelling over from Warrington, would appreciate some info on their whereabouts. Don't want to travel only for the game to be called off.

Starting to think I'll give this one a miss!

Sealandroadender - please help. Can you pick up the phone to your nephew and ask him to ask their manager what's going on. I'll pay for the call!
I'm about to set off on a 100 mile round trip from Congleton .....or not. Thanks in anticipation

Just rung the club and told them they'll be losing a lot of business from the more distant fans if we don't have a quicker update than 6.45. Have asked the lady there to get Banksy to contribute to this thread if he can ....cos otherwise I won't be coming nor bringing my first-time-out friend. T'would be a pity.

Are the club concerned about the fog at all or is that not an issue?
