Charlton to hold 9am pitch inspection ahead of game against Derby County
C HARLTON Athletic will have a precautionary pitch inspection at 9am tomorrow ahead of the Championship clash against Derby County at The Valley.
Despite the recent heavy rain, the pitch is currently playable but Charlton are concerned about the weather forecast for heavy rain tomorrow in the hours before the 3pm kick off.
Head of operations Mick Everett said: "At the moment, although it's very wet given the recent weather, the pitch is playable, and apart from the odd shower, the rest of today and overnight should be dry.
"However, we're concerned that the pitch cannot take much more water, and from around midday tomorrow the forecast is for torrential rain in the three-hour period leading up to kick-off.
