FOREST Green's match at home to Barnet on Saturday isn't expected to go ahead despite a referee's inspection passing a soggy New Lawn pitch fit today, Friday.

As it stands, Forest Green's match against Barnet FC at The New Lawn on Saturday is still on, but a second pitch inspection will take place at 8.30am tomorrow morning.

Forest Green boss Ady Pennock, groundsman Stewart Ward and a local referee inspected the pitch at lunchtime, but with heavy overnight rain due and another downpour tomorrow, the match is expected to be postponed.
