Reports from the midlands are suggesting that the Cherries trip to Walsall could be in doubt due to the weather.

The Walsall ground staff were featured on Sky Sports News yesterday as they have a rather novel way of trying to warm up the pitch…building small fires on it!

The pitch has been covered in plastic sheeting and Walsall have several ‘braziers’ plotted around the pitch!

‘Premiership clubs have undersoil heating, we have oversoil heating’ A club spokesman told Sky Sports News.

The clubs main concern is that a postponement of a weekend match could cost the club in the region of £20,000 in lost revenue due to the match being replayed midweek.
