Boston United faced yet another blank Saturday as today's scheduled fixture at home to Farsley Celtic was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

However, four National League North contests survived, and the results could well have an effect on the promotion race, which involves the Pilgrims.

Leaders York City needed a stoppage-time equaliser to draw 1-1 at home against relegation battlers Curzon Ashton, who Boston visit on Saturday.

They now lead second placed King's Lynn by three points and third-placed United by seven points, the Pilgrims with two games in hand.

Altrincham moved up to fifth following their 2-0 win at Hereford.

They trail United by two points but have played two games more.

Brackley Town, dropped a place to sixth following their 1-1 draw at Darlington.

The Pilgrims travel to St James' Park on Tuesday evening.

The final game of the day saw Spennymoor Town, also in the promotion hunt, return tpo the top-seven following their 3-3 draw at home to AFC Telford United.

The Moors were reduced to 10 men while Gateshead, who beat Boston 3-0 in midweek, dropped out the play-off spots.
