I would like to think they could do it immediately. All the water has now drained off the pitch and it's playable. Yesterday was particularly atrocious weather and it's fortunate for other clubs that it came after a reasonably long spell of dry weather so their pitches could soak up all that was thrown at them.

The strongest theory about what went wrong is a residue off the rubber crumb building up rapidly and instead of filtering down the drain, it caused a blockage which prevented the water from penetrating down to the drainage system. I know some people think there was simply too much crumb laid down but we are in the hands of the experts.

It may be that the residue has now simply washed through now and we will never get a repeat but obviously we would want a pretty strong reassurance of this!

I doubt that there would be any need to rearrange any matches.
