Following numerous requests for clarity on this from fans, we can confirm that our South Manchester Derby fixture away at Maine Road will take place on Boxing Day, Tuesday 26th December with the kick off taking place at 3pm.
We are away that several supporters had requested that the game be moved to Wednesday 27th December, but due to several different reasons – including the Wednesday not being a Bank Holiday, and therefore any tie on that day needing to take place at 7.45pm – we were unable to come to agreement to have the game moved. We are aware that travel restrictions may mean that some supporters may not be able to make the game, but we would still be hugely appreciative of any fans making the journey to the other side of the M21 postcode for what will be a vital derby fixture. Come on, West!
