It means Fylde could be knocked off top spot on goal difference if second-placed King's Lynn Town win at Brackley Town tonight, though the Norfolk side will have played two games more.

It leaves Fylde facing 11 games in the final six weeks of the season as they look to rearrange a Curzon clash previously called off in September and December.

Tonight's match would have been the fifth successive Tuesday fixture for Adam Murray's Fylde team as they look to ease their backlog. Matches are already scheduled for the next two Tuesdays.
