LIVERSEDGE are still waiting to play their first game in March after last night’s trip to Bottesford Town in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division became their latest postponement.

It was a fifth consecutive fixture that Sedge had lost to the weather – two at home and three on the road.

Jonathon Rimmington’s men now face at least one game every two and a half days before the scheduled end of the season, and if they progress in the League Cup their fixture chaos would be even worse.

Sedge have not played since their 3-1 home defeat to Barton Town on the final Saturday of February.

Brighouse Town were one of the few semi-pro sides in the area to play at the weekend, but they also faced frustration last night as their Evo-Stik League Division One home game against fellow strugglers Ramsbottom United was shelved for a second time.

With drier weather forecast last night and today, it gives tonight’s two fixtures a better chance of escaping the glut of postponements.

The much awaited NCEL Division One derby between Campion and Eccleshill United could get the go ahead for example.

The black and reds have slipped to 11th in the table while their visitors are third.

Should the Eagles win, they will reclaim second place – an automatic promotion berth – from Grimsby Borough.

Eccleshill are two points behind Borough but have a game in hand.

Albion Sports are due back in action in the Premier Division at Pickering Town.

Like Eccleshill, the Pikes would go second in their division with a win - they are fourth, ten places higher than Kulwinder Sandhu’s Albion Lions.
