HIGHGATE United were left kicking their heels for a second successive Saturday after their Midland Alliance trip to Ellesmere was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Boss Keith Checketts was disappointed his side missed out on the chance to build on their momentum following two successive victories and with results going against them, Gate find themselves just one place above the drop zone in the table.
One benefit of the unwelcome lay-off has been the opportunity for players to recover from knocks picked up during what has been a busy period for the team, which together with the recent signings of Trevor Edwards and Alex Price, as well as the return of captain Tom Reynolds from holiday, means Checketts is left with his strongest possible squad from which to select for Saturday’s visit of Rocester (3pm). The only down side will be the absence of keeper Shaun Edwards who serves a one-game ban after picking up five yellow cards.
The Rocester clash is followed by the visit of league leaders Stratford Town on Tuesday night (7.45pm) and they are sure to be seeking quick revenge after Gate knocked them out of the League Cup just three weeks ago.
