Groundsman- No problems with pitch

Town's Carling Cup clash with West Brom on Wednesday survived the big freeze after a huge clear-up operation and despite a further dusting of overnight snow, Ferguson is confident the televised lunchtime fixture will go ahead.

"There won't be any danger from the pitch side of things," Ferguson told the East Anglian Daily Times. "We have one of the most advanced cover systems around.

"There has been several centimetres of snowfall overnight but the forecast is that we won't get anything near as much in the build-up to the weekend.

"The clear-up operation is underway, we have got some help in from local golf club groundskeepers and ground staff from local private schools to help with the pitch, while there will be plenty more working on the surrounding areas of the ground."
