Some fans are gutted, with many not able to make a midweek game, although others say that it’s the correct decision.
One fan did say that it would have been better if they’d postponed the game on Friday while another said it was pathetic as he’d managed to get to work all week.

One Aston Villa fan did point out the sliver lining to the game being called off – that star player Jack Grealish should be able to play in the rearranged game after missing out today with injury.
