Braintree confident of ending barren spell without home action
Braintree Town are confident that they will get their first home Skrill Premier fixture since December 28 tonight when Cambridge United visit the Amlin Stadium.
A waterlogged Amlin Stadium pitch has denied the Iron any home action since their win against Tamworth at the end of 2013.
They have twice had games against Cambridge called-off, with tonight's fixture originally planned for New Year's Day.
Chairman Lee Harding told the Times that having that game postponed could cost Braintree in the region of £20,000, but he was confident that it would finally go ahead tonight.
Ground staff reported that pitch drainage renovation works completed over the past few days were coping well and a statement on the club's website said there was "no doubt" about this evening's match would be played.
No pre-match pitch inspection is planned and turnstiles will open at 6.15pm for a 7.45pm kick-off.
