The weather forecasts for the Bulls next two games are looking brighter.
For the Boxing Day trip to Wycombe temperatures over the next two days are expected to be higher than earlier thought but will remain sub-zero until lunchtime on the day. With the pitch heated, the only concern is the local conditions to get to the ground and the Chairboys are already warning that severely limited parking will be available at the ground due to snow. Their advice is to use the park and ride service that is expected to operate as normal.
The home match against Northampton on the 28th is now being predicted to have a 7c temperature on matchday, but sleet, light snow, and heavy overnight rain is all forecast for the 24 hours beforehand. However the pitch will still have to survive a freeze that will beat the frost covers' -5c protection from around 6pm tonight until early morning on Boxing Day.
