Aslef, the train drivers’ union, announced it had an overwhelming mandate for further industrial action which will involve drivers walking out at nine rail companies in a dispute over pay.

A total of 974 drivers at CrossCountry and Avanti – 93% – voted in favour of a strike on 13 August, adding to actions already scheduled for that Saturday by drivers at Greater Anglia, Great Western Railway, Hull Trains, LNER, London Overground, Southeastern and West Midlands Trains.

I’m 100% in favour of the strike action so can’t complain when it inconveniences me. Factor this news into your match day plans though for the early kick off.

Could try National Express if you don't want to drive? Might take a while.

Don't forget this has now also been moved to a stupid o'clock kick off time!

The club need to communicate this asap to people to arrange alternative plans.

We have had a week of near seamless integrated public transport across the city for the commonwealth games. Next week will be back to reality of total gridlock.

Cant the club purchase some of those shuttle buses and say to fans park at the Fort/Star City from 11am and we'll pick some of you up or is that too short notice?

I actually caught a train on cross city line on one of the strike days so they do still run but it's every half hour so going to be insane queues at Aston and Witton stations so avoid at all costs.
