Leeds game on against Waddock's wishes
Leeds United have confirmed that tomorrow's game against Wycombe Wanderers will definitely go ahead despite the atrocious weather gripping the entire country.
The Elland Road club have told Wycombe that following a safety inspection at 11am this morning a decision was taken to proceed with the match, but Chairboys' manager Gary Waddock feels the entire football programme this weekend should have been scrapped.
Speaking to The Bucks Free Press, Waddock said: "I think the most sensible thing would be to cancel the whole programme."
"You have to take into consideration the safety of the players, supporters and all of the people involved, and with the conditions as they are, travelling these distances could be a serious problem."
"It could be very dangerous and even if we manage to get to Leeds, we have all got to get back again when the temperatures have dropped in the night."
With Waddock and many of his players snowed-in this week, the Chairboys have been unable to train as usual for what would have been a difficult game at Elland Road even under normal circumstances.
