VIDEO: Fireworks display halts FA Cup tie at Cheltenham Town

It happened again.


Cheltenham vs Man City became the second FA Cup match in recent weeks to be halted by a nearby fireworks display, following Stockport vs West Ham.

Referee Stuart Attwell whistled for a break in the action during Saturday’s 4th round tie at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium as a flurry of pyrotechnics erupted overhead.

Some debris from it landed on the pitch, underlining the health and safety calculation behind the decision to call a halt in proceedings.

In the match itself, the League Two side looked set to spring a famous upset but three goals in the last ten minutes saw City run out 3-1 winners.
