Manager Neil Aspin said he was disappointed his side were denied the chance to take on Mossley after a waterlogged pitch saw the game cancelled.

The Shaymen were due to travel to Greater Manchester for the game yesterday (Tues).

But a day of heavy rain meant the game had to be called off just two hours before kick off.

Aspin said: “I was looking forward to it.

“It would have been good for the players to get another 45 minutes but there was nothing anybody could do about it.

“There was water sitting on the pitch and given the weather we’ve been having there was always a chance it could be off.

“I was ten miles away from the ground when I got the call and the players had already set off so we couldn’t do any other training,” he said.

Aspin admitted it was rare for a game to be called off in July.

“I had a game abandoned when I was playing for Port Vale against Wimbledon because of a thunder storm, but never had a game called off in July before kick off.

“Mossley will have wanted to play the game because it will have cost them money to call it off.

“You just can’t legislate for things like this.”
