A new date has been set for Boston United's National League North fixture at Brackley Town.

The Pilgrims were due to face their promotion rivals at St James' Park on Saturday, but the contest was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Boston will now travel to Brackley on Tuesday, March 3 (KO 7.45pm).

Pilgrims manager Craig Elliott had previously told The Standard he feared his side would be left facing seven games in March due to the postponement, and that has become the case.

United still have three February fixtures left to play, at home against AFC Telford United on Saturday (KO 3pm), followed by the arrival of Gateshead next Tuesday (KO 7.45pm) and Farsley Celtic the following weekend.

March fixtures: Tuesday, March 3 - Brackley Town (A); Saturday, March 7 - Curzon Ashton (A); Tuesday, March 10 - Cleethorpes Town (Lincs Senior Cup final, at Lincoln City); Saturday, March 14 - Chester FC (A); Tuesday, March 17 - Darlington (H); Saturday, March 21 - Alfreton Town (H); Saturday, March 28 - Leamington (A).
