Faversham Town will warm up for Saturday’s trip to leaders Peacehaven & Telscombe by training at Maidstone United’s Gallagher Stadium on Thursday tonight .
With Salters Lane waterlogged, the Lilywhites had their home game against Redhill postponed on Tuesday and they were left without a training pitch.
But a solution was found when Town manager Ray Turner accepted an offer of help from his Stones counterpart, Jay Saunders.
Turner said: “Jay did say that if we were struggling, he’d try to help us out a little bit, so that’s good of him. It gives us an opportunity to work on a decent surface.
“It’s all right running around in the mud but after a while, the quality does start to suffer.
“It’ll be good to have a change of scenery, too. We’re trying to keep the players fresh, mentally, for what is a big game on Saturday.”
If that game, at Peacehaven, goes ahead, it will be the first Faversham have played outside Kent since their 3-1 win at Three Bridges on November 30.
The leaders have only lost twice in the league all season, including a 3-0 reverse at Faversham in September.
Luke Harvey (hamstring) is still two weeks away from a return to action, Turner is hoping to sign a striker on loan by the weekend.
Faversham travel to Horsham on Tuesday night, kick-off 7.30pm.
