ICY weather forced officials to call off the Reds' crucial semi-final clash against Kendal Town this week.
After an inspection of the pitch earlier in the day, it was decided the Lancashire FA Marsden Trophy game should be postponed. A frozen pitch was blamed and Stanley's semi-final will now take place on Wednesday night. The weather also forced other semi-finalists Leigh RMI and Chorley to call their match off.
However, the squad travels to Worksop Town tomorrow aiming to secure three valuable points as the race for the Unibond League title hots up.
The Reds, who didn't have a match last Saturday, still remain comfortably at the top of the Unibond Premier League but Vauxhall Motors' win over Burscough on Tuesday night means they have closed the gap to just 13 points and they have three games in hand.
But manager John Coleman has a full squad to chose from for Saturday's game and intends to make it count. He said: "Vauxhall have had to play catch up as they had a good run in the FA Cup but it's the same with any teams with games in hand.
"When you look at the league there's Stalybridge, Barrow and Vauxhall all up there going for the title just like we are. But we can't think about them until we play them. We know ourselves it's pointless if we start thinking about other teams as it will just put us off. We just have to concentrate on our own position."
Stanley have agreed to play their postponed match against Whitby on 6 April , which is just 24 hours after their game against Droylsden.
- Stanley have organised another coach for fans wanting to see the Worksop Town game, which will leave the Crown ground at 12 noon. Seats cost £9 and further details are available from Rob on 383235.
