STOURPORT Swifts will be praying the rain holds off sufficiently to avoid yet another postponement at Coventry Sphinx tomorrow (7.45).

Swifts will be among the busiest clubs in the country with 18 Midland Football League matches to fit into the remaining 46 days of the season.

There are teams with more fixtures to cram in, most notably FA Vase semi-finalists 1874 Northwich with a whopping 23 games in the North West Counties League to go aside from cup commitments. They do have an extra week to factor in.

Since losing to Bromsgrove Sporting in the middle of January, Stourport have put together a five-match unbeaten run in the league which has seen them stride away from relegation trouble in the Premier Division.

  • HEREFORD’S bid to tighten their grip on the Southern League title race at Biggleswade Town (7.45) will be the subject of a morning pitch inspection.

Heavy rainfall has cast doubt over the fixture in Bedfordshire as the Bulls look to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat to nearest-rivals King’s Lynn Town.

Peter Beadle’s men still remain in control of their own destiny with a seven-point cushion at the Premier Division summit with the benefit of a game in hand.

The Linnets will have the opportunity to keep pace when they entertain play-off hopefuls Slough Town.

Droitwich Spa host a derby date against Fairfield Villa in Midland Football League Division Two (7.45).

Like landlords Stourport Swifts, Spa have a backlog of games to fit in having completed only half of their scheduled league fixtures. They trail Fairfield by four points with the benefit of three games in hand.
