There has been very little snowfall in the Morecambe area, in the build up to Colchester United’s visit to the Globe Arena this Saturday, but a pitch inspection has been organised for midday tomorrow.

The north-west Lancashire coastline has escaped the brunt of the wintry weather, so this weekend’s League Two fixture will not be affected by snow levels.

However, the continued freezing conditions might still be a factor, with a frozen pitch a distinct possibility.

And that is why a pitch inspection has been arranged for noon tomorrow.

Struggling to avoid relegation, Morecambe have already had a couple of matches called off this season, including a clash with lowly rivals Chesterfield, so they will be keen to get this weekend’s fixture staged.

The U’s will be keen to bounce back from back-to-back defeats at the hands of two more relegation candidates, Crewe and Barnet.
