Macclesfield Postponed

THE postponement of the Pilgrims' Sky Bet League Two game at Macclesfield Town this weekend leaves Argyle without a game until Boxing Day.

The postponement of the game at Moss Rose was taken on Friday evening by the EFL after Macclesfield Town had been issued with a zero capacity notice by the local Safety Advisory Group (SAG).

The notice was served by the SAG on Thursday and Macclesfield, with the assistance of the EFL, had spent the intervening 24 hours working on a solution in respect of the outstanding inspections and tests required at the Moss Rose Stadium that would ensure the capacity was reinstated.

Despite making significant progress, the SAG was not satisfied all its requirements had been met and maintained the capacity of the stadium at zero, resulting in Macclesfield informing the League it would not be in a position to fulfil the fixture with supporters in attendance.

Macclesfield did request to play behind closed doors, however on consideration, as per the provisions in Regulation 33.1, the EFL did not agree to the request.

The Pilgrims' next game is at Cheltenham Town on Thursday, December 26 (3pm).
