Holyport manager Derek Sweetman was once again frustrated by the weather, after the heavy rains of last week led to the cancellation of Saturday’s home game with Milton United.
Milton are one of a number of sides Port are looking to chase down for a top four finish, and their rivals were in fine form ahead of the fixture having thumped Marlow United 5-1 the previous week.
A top four finish will be good enough for promotion this season, thanks to the creation of a new step five level division for sides located around the Thames Valley.
Sixth placed Holyport are a couple of points behind fourth placed Chalvey Sports – who beat them 2-1 earlier this month – but have six matches in hand on them. They also have four matches in hand of third placed Milton United and second placed Abingdon United.
However, they haven’t won in the league since their 6-0 win over bottom club Abingdon Town on December 12, and a series of postponements checked their progression over the Christmas period.
So far in 2020 they’ve lost to Chalvey Sports and Risborough Rangers and drawn with Wokingham & Emmbrook.
They're due to host Kidlington Development on Saturday.
