The pitch was perfectly playable and Rodwell said: "I am astonished at the decision of today's match referee to call the game off.
"In all my years in football I have never been more surprised at a decision.
"It quite simply beggars belief that a professional match official could come to this conclusion.
"Both managers and both sets of players wanted to play the game and were more than happy with the condition of the pitch.
"It appears that the only person in the stadium who thought that the game was a danger to the players was the referee."
