Wimbledon v Charlton - Postponed Early

Wimbledon v Charlton - Postponed Early

Charlton Athletic were due to be at Kingsmeadow as the visitors to Wimbledon for the latest league match this weekend.

The game was set for a 3pm kick-off however, due to the weather conditions in recent days during the build up to the game, the decision was taken to postpone the match earlier today in the interests of supporters and their travel arrangements.

A brief statement from Charlton explained that at a pitch inspection earlier today, it was deemed unplayable and frozen.

Manager Karl Robinson was obviously disappointed the game was off, but the players would be in for training tomorrow as the club had come up with alternative plans knowing a postponement was possible.

'To get this into the legs today gives us that high intensity hit, that we probably would have covered in the game tomorrow. Yeah, we trained yesterday. Our pitch is obviously playable today. If it was here we`d have been available to play, whether the surrounding areas would have been a problem would have been down to the police and a security perspective and a welfare issue in some ways.'

He went on to add.

'We`re a bit disappointed, when you are in this industry you are always ready to play to the best of your ability but listen, the pitch wasn`t playable, it`s nobody`s fault. We`ve been in constant contact with Neal Ardley and his team. Obviously they`ve got Chelsea`s groundsmen looking after it so they`ve got some of the best out there to try and make the pitch playable but it`s not to be unfortunately."'

With three postponed games to factor into the end of season run in (Shrewsbury, Blackpool and AFC Wimbledon) Robinson added.

'It`s going to be a real hectic run-in but these players have to be ready for one of the most difficult run-ins of their careers. Physically and mentally we`ve got get ourselves ready. We`re in a great position, we stay positive throughout the course of next week and we get ready for Saturday afternoon.'
