IMPORTANT FIXTURE NEWS

Sunday 23 Oct 2011

As announced in the matchday programme against Alfreton: if the FAC 4Q round game against Fleetwood next Saturday is drawn, then the replay will be on the following Tuesday (Tues Nov 1st, at Fleetwood) as dictated by the FA.

However, in addition, this will mean that the league game at home to Cambridge on Thursday Nov 3rd (which was due to be live on Premier Sports TV) would be moved to Saturday Nov 5th at 3pm and would no longer be on TV. That would also be the case if Cambridge drew their FAC 4Q round game at Hayes & Yeading.

If we assume there is a 25% chance of the Mansfield v Fleetwood game being drawn. And if we assume there is a 25% chance of the Hayes v Cambridge game being drawn.
Then simple mathematics shows there is a 43.75% chance of the Cambridge game being moved to the Saturday and no longer being live on TV.

If we assume that there is a 33% chance of the Mansfield v Fleetwood game being drawn. And if we assume there is a 33% chance of the Hayes v Cambridge game being drawn.
Then simple mathematics shows there is a [1-(2/3 * 2/3)] = 5/9 = 55.5% chance of the Cambridge game being moved to the Saturday and no longer being live on TV.
