Exeter City Football Club is to take legal advice after the state of its pitch forced the postponement of the League One match against Swindon Town.

Tuesday night's game was cancelled after officials decided the goalmouth at the away end was waterlogged.

In a statement the club apologised to fans for the condition and performance of the pitch at St James Park.

It added the Board would now be seeking both technical and legal advice before making any further comment.

"Everyone at the club worked extremely hard during the build-up to this game and we all share the fans' frustration at the postponement," the club said.

The pitch was moved last summer to enable future development of the away end stand.
