Bradford Park Avenue and Guiseley left kicking their heels yet again
Bradford Park Avenue and Guiseley remain marooned in the middle of the Conference North table after yet more postponement frustration.
The local rivals had home games lined up on Saturday but both Horsfall Stadium and Nethermoor failed early morning pitch inspections.
They were the only two games off in the division.
Despite that the Lions remained 12th, with Avenue immediately below them.
Had Vauxhall Motors won they would have leapfrogged both Bradford and Guiseley but the Motormen lost 4-2 at home to leaders AFC Telford United.
Avenue have 14 games left while the Lions have 18 remaining and, with March looming, the season enters its last nine weeks.
The frustration could not be worse for Avenue centre back James Knowles as he has served just one game of his four-match suspension.
With three of Avenue’s last four games all postponed, Knowles’ ban would have been over had the weather been more clement.
Guiseley should be back in action on Tuesday night when they make the long journey to Brackley Town for a rearranged fixture.
Avenue must wait until next Saturday when they travel to title hopefuls Telford.
Thackley were also denied a run-out at home as their Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier Division meeting with Worksop Parramore was postponed, again following an early inspection.
