Breaking news – Leeds Carnegie game on

Supporters are advised that today’s big Guinness Premiership clash with Leeds Carnegie (kick-off 1pm) is ON – but fans should allow extra time to travel to Sixways Stadium.

Torrential overnight rain has caused standing water around parts of the stadium complex – after Barbourne Brook burst its banks – and fans are advised to make their journey to the game earlier that planned.

Equipment from Worcestershire County Cricket Club and Kidderminster Cricket Club have been brought into the club this morning to help drain surface water off the pitch and ensure the big televised game goes ahead.

However, parking will be restricted on-site and fans planning to use the park and walk system are warned that the Butterfly Farm cut-through is inaccessible. Supporters can still use the park and walk system but joining Offerton Lane further down the road. Stewards will be on site to direct fans.

Extra police and signage will also be on site to ensure fans can safely enter the ground for the big match day.

Tickets are still available for the Guinness Premiership clash with cash ONLY sales on the main drive ahead of the game.
