Right decision for Waddock
Wycombe manager Gary Waddock felt "the right decision was made" as his side's clash with Bristol Rovers was abandoned with the Chairboys losing 3-1.
Two superb goals by Eliot Richards had put the Pirates in control but persistent heavy rain coupled with a thunderstorm that saw lightning come dangerously close to striking Adams Park put the match in jeopardy. Eventually, referee Andy Davies decided to call off proceedings with 67 minutes gone with the pitch unplayable and the fan's safety in question. Waddock said: "It was for health and safety reasons so you have to say that, of course, the right decision was made. As we came out for the second half, we saw the grey skies and the rain that was falling and the conditions were just awful. "Then we had the thunder and lightning so, obviously, for safety reasons the game had to be called off. I can understand Bristol Rovers being so disappointed with the scoreline being 3-1 in their favour but everyone's safety is more important than any result. "It's a bit of a let-off for us because they were 3-1 up and that tells you that they were in a position to go on and win the game. It was a disappointing first half from us, though - we put some fresh legs in the team but that wasn't the case and there's no getting away that we were poor."
