Arsenal’s WSL match with Reading on Sunday afternoon has been postponed. Reading applied for a postponement due to injuries and covid cases in the squad meaning they could not field a team.
The game will be rearranged, it’s the second consecutive home match that has been postponed for Arsenal at the request of the opponent. Jonas Eidevall has made his feelings clear on the recent spate of postponements in the WSL.
Last week, he said, ““We wanted to play Brighton before Christmas, I still don’t know why the game wasn’t played or what was going on. You don’t get any transparency from anyone on which players are available, you just get the message from the FA that the game will be postponed.
“For me, I think a football game should go on if it’s scheduled. I think it should be extreme conditions that you don’t play a football game. I just hope that the decision-making process where they are postponing games, that they can stick with that all season. The end of the season will come at some point and what happens if the team has not been able to play all the games then?”
Arsenal’s game against Brighton, which was postponed from Sunday, 19th December and will now be replayed on Thursday, 27th January at Meadow Park.
