    Fog causes postponement of Brighton v Cardiiff

    Disappointment as hundreds of City fans already in Brighton when game called off

    C:WindowsTempphpD61A.tmpLess than two hours before kick off Brighton v Cardiff City has been called off due to heavy fog in the area.


    My journey down to the south coast involed fog from Berkshire onwards, speaking to the locals they say it's been foggy all day in Brighton, so why no information earlier from the club?


    While ticket costs will be refunded to those who can't make the re-arranged game, there are many of us left out of pocket after a wasted journey.


    The referee below states the reasons for the postponement, and you can't legislate against the weather, but I feel Brighton could have given the travlleing fans a bit more warning and allowed them to make a decision about turning around.

    Waste of travel time and money. Been in Portsmouth today. Couldn't see the Spinnaker Tower from Gunwharf Keys fog was that bad. Late to call it off though.

    C' mon guys Everybody with a radio or a TV have known the Sarf of England has been blanketed in fog for two days and more to come. Its nobodies fault. Be honest, even if most of you knew the game might be called off you would still have gone. Power to all who gave it a go and have a safe trip home lads.

    At least we didn't lose

    I found out as I arrived in Lewes, but at least I had a relatively short drive back to Surrey.

    You would have given them a decent game tonight. Its been a long time since a Cardiff City game was postponed due to fog.

    SkyBet have said that they will fund travel to the rearranged fixture for anyone who travelled today.

    Nice gesture
