Serie A bottom side Novara lost 2-1
at home to Chievo in Emiliano Mondonico's first game in charge
on Thursday in what was the last evening game in Italy for the
immediate future after cold weather forced a rethink on kick-off
Sergio Pellissier and Cyril Thereau put midtable Chievo 2-0
up either side of the break with new forward Giuseppe Mascara's
79th minute goal only a consolation for the hosts, who sacked
Attilio Tesser on Monday but stay seven points from safety.
Four Serie A games have been postponed this week due to
heavy snow, prompting a row within the Italian game about
dilapidated stadiums and late kickoff times in bad winters.
Novara's game went ahead despite the cold but this weekend's
top flight matches will all now kick off at 11:30 or 14:00 GMT
with the three games slated for the evening being played earlier
to avoid the worst weather, the league said in a statement.
