A blessing in disguise? Can Boston United’s postponed Colwyn clash work in their favour

Dennis Greene hopes that Boston United’s postponed match at Colwyn Bay can be a blessing in disguise.

With heavy overnight rain and swirling winds, officials in Wales opted to postponed today’s Skrill North contest.

And although that means the Pilgrims will now have to make the mammoth four-hour, 200-mile trek across country for a midweek match, manager Greene hasn’t been left too annoyed.

He said: “I’m not sure if it is frustrating.

“If the game was on today we’d be going there in conditions which are really tough.

“I’m sure that if you look up and down the country today then you’ll see some strange results going on.”

Indeed, in similar conditions this season the Seagulls shocked early pacesetters Solihull Moors at Llanelian Road in a contest where their keeper Chris Sanna scored from within his own penalty area.

The match finished 3-1 in the hosts’ favour, with the Moors left feeling hard done by as the swirling winds dictated much of the play.

Greene doesn’t want his promotion-chasing side to suffer a similar fate, adding: “The Colwyn Bay game is a must-win game from our point of view. We have to win it.

“So if you look at the bigger picture, we’ll be going there in midweek now but if we prepare properly and the conditions are better then hopefully we can pick up three points.

“So, from that, it’s not too disappointing.”

A new date for the fixture is yet to be set.

Boston United Reserves’ match at home to Nettleham in the Lincs League has overcome the elements and will kick off at 2pm.
