Sleaford Town’s return to the United Counties League fray ended in a damp squib when their Easter Monday derby trip to Boston Town was postponed.

The match has been re-arranged to Tuesday, May 1 and will now be Town’s final match of the season.

Next up for Jamie Shaw’s side, who lie 19th and six points above the two relegation spots, is a trip to Rothwell Corinthians on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Rothwell lie 14th in the table and have lost their last three league outings.
