National League North title chasers King's Lynn Town are facing a potentially exhausting fixture backlog.

Saturday's league clash at Altrincham fell foul of the weather and the games are now starting to pile up for manager Ian Culverhouse and his players.

The Linnets, who have now had three successive blank Saturday's, have lost three of their last four fixtures to the elements.

General Linnets manager Mark Hearle said: "There is no doubt that we have been unlucky with the weather over the past few weeks and it has created an extremely busy looking month of March.

"However, it is what it is and we will go out and deal with it on a game-by-game basis - the same as we always do."

Lynn have a gruelling end to the campaign, with eight fixtures still to be fulfilled before the end of March and another five in April – plus the postponed Altrincham fixture – to come.

With Easter falling on the second weekend of April, Lynn are starting to run out of alternative dates for fixtures should there be any more postponements.

Lynn have free Tuesday's on March 24th and 31st, but only one in April, which is the 21st, because of Good Friday and Easter Monday.

With the Linnets due to travel to Hereford on the first weekend of April, it is unlikely that they will want the Altrincham trip rescheduled for the final Tuesday in March.

Lynn, who dropped to second in the league standings on Saturday following York City's 1-0 victory at Kidderminster Harriers, are next in action at home to Southport on Saturday.

It's the first time since mid-November, King's Lynn Town have a team above them in the promotion race, which looks set to go right down to the wire.
