Saturday’s basement battle between Leighton Town and Aylesbury United will have to wait for another day after rain put paid to any chances of play.

Following Towns’ 4-3 win over Barton Rovers on Boxing Day, victory over the ironically nicknamed Ducks would’ve seen Stuart Murray’s side climb out of the Evo Stik Division 1 Central relegation zone.

But the torrential rain, which affected sports up and down the country at the weekend, caused havoc with The ASM Stadium pitch and the game had to be called off.

In the meantime, the manager has been busy working behind the scenes in bid to bring in new faces to Town’s squad.

He hopes to have at least two ready for the visit of Potters Bar on Saturday, though he will be without regular Jack Copson for the game at Bell Close.
