Sheppey & Sheerness United have to wait a little longer to close in on the Kent County League, Premier Division title.
United were due to face Erith 147 Sports on Wednesday but that game has been postponed until next Thursday. Before then, they host Bredhurst Juniors at Holm Park on Saturday.
A 2-0 victory last weekend at APM Contrast has all-but-secured their promotion to the Kent Invicta League, but boss Kevin Hake doesn’t want his side to ease off.
“We want to put promotion beyond doubt and win the league,” said Hake, whose side can overtake Metrogas at the top this week.
“We are pleased to have come away with a convincing performance against APM and although we are now 12 points clear they could still catch us if they win all of their games in hand.
“It would be a phenomenal achievement for them to do it but until it’s mathematically certain then nothing is guaranteed.
“We’ve got to just keep winning but with four games to go a lot could still happen."
