'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - More complaints about pitch

Rotherham United have received another complaint about the pitch at Don Valley. These complaints are being made after a U2 concert was held on 20th August at the stadium.

Huddersfield Town Manager, Lee Clark has added to Keith Hill, the Rochdale Manager's, complaints and concerns about the playing surface at the Stadium.

Speaking to the BBC after their win over the Millers last night, Mr Clark said, 'Professional football shouldn't be played on that pitch. It was worse than a parks pitch. The pitch was so uneven that it is very easy to twist ankles or to slip over and cause injury. I'm glad we won the game because if we'd lost then it would have been difficult for me to talk about it.

'I went to see the referee an hour before kick-off to tell him my concerns and to make sure he knew them. We will be putting our disappointment about the quality of the pitch in written form.

'We are not having a go at anyone from Rotherham United because it's a situation with the stadium.'

I have to say that, to me, the pitch looked as bad, if not worse, than it did when Rochdale came last weekend - when, at least, there was only two different sections to it. Now there seems to be four or five different surfaces on there. Let's hope it can be sorted soon.
