Retford United will play the first two matches of their UniBond League Premier Division campaign in Lincoln.

With the Cannon Park pitch deemed unsafe by the league after the work carried out in the summer, the Badgers have arranged to play their home games against North Ferriby United tonight and FC United of Manchester on Saturday at Lincoln United's Ashby Avenue ground.

The club will be putting on a free coach service to the games for supporters wanting to make the journey.

A club statement said: "The club understand everyone's frustrations around the whole matter, and can confirm that remedial action is being taken to bring the pitch up to the required standards.

"However, we are unable to comment on the current state as the club awaits legal advice on the situation."
