"You can't get the stick in the ground in some parts and we are forecast-2C and three for the next couple of nights and -4C on Friday night.
"If it doesn't improve significantly on Wednesday, which I don't think it is going to, we will probably have a look on Thursday.
"I don't see any point in prolonging the agony too much as it's not looking brilliant at the moment."
