Home fires burning but Dale game is off

LONDON, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Diehard fans of English League Two club Rochdale went to extraordinary lengths to try and thaw out the pitch in time for Tuesday's home match against Notts County. Around 40 oil drums were scattered around the frozen Spotland playing surface with fans working in sub-zero temperatures throughout the night to burn wood and coal in the hope of keeping the pitch soft enough to play. Desperate requests for more fuel were made on Tuesday but despite the efforts of the club's groundstaff and fans the match fell victim to the severe frosts and was postponed. However, the fires will be kept burning to make sure Saturday's match against Wycombe Wanderers survives. 'Our fans have proved they are simply the best and we can't thank them enough,' club chairman Chris Dunphy told the Rochdale website. 'We will continue to keep the fires burning because we have a massively important game on Saturday. Though we have lots of wood now we need more braziers so we can cover the full length of the pitch.'
