PIRATES boss Matt Ford confirmed the running of the SGB Premiership fixture against Wolverhampton a week tonight would depend on the exploits of the England football team.

If the Three Lions defeat Sweden on Saturday, they would face a World Cup semi-final against Croatia or Russia four days later (7pm).

And Ford told the Daily Echo he would not press ahead in that eventuality, preferring instead to reschedule the clash with Peter Adams’s side.

Poole take on Belle Vue tonight.
