Woodford United were the only one of the area’s three senior football teams to get their game played at the weekend - but they were beaten 5-0 at Fleet.

Pete Harris’s men were 2-0 down inside the first 17 minutes, and then gave a good account of themselves before three late goals, two of them in the final three minutes, gave the scoreline a flattering look for the home side.

The defeat means Woodford remain bottom of the Ev-Stik League Division One Central table, and still without a point this season.

They will try again for that elusive win tonight (Tues) when they take on Biggleswade at Byfield Road (ko 7.30pm), weather permitting of course.

It will be a tough ask for Woodford as Biggleswade currently sit in the promotion play-off places, although the Reds were only beaten 2-1 when the sides met at Biggleswade earlier this season.

Daventry Town will also be hoping to get back to playing tonight after they saw their home clash with Thatcham on Saturday postponed due to a snow-covered and waterlogged pitch.

Town remain in eighth place in the table, but they are now 11 points adrift of the top five.

Darran Foster’s men will be hoping the wintry weather clears up so they can get their home clash with Leighton Town on at Communications Park tonight (ko 7.45pm).

There will be a pitch inspetion at 3.30pm.

Long Buckby also had their UCL Premier Division clash with Blackstone postponed because of the snow on Saturday.

Scott Goodwin’s men are due to be back in action next Saturday when they travel to Shepshed Dynamo.
