Postponement buys time for duo

The match was called off due to a frozen pitch at the Crown Ground, giving key players Jake Cole and Ismail Yakubu longer to recover from their respective injuries.

Both were included in the squad but their involvement was a doubt, with Cole suffering from an adductor strain and Yakubu having picked up a thigh problem.

Hendon told the official website: "The postponement was, in the event, helpful. Jake and Ismail now have time to be fighting fit for the Boxing Day visit to Aldershot."
