EYNESBURY Rovers and Kempston Rovers were locked at 1-1 when their game was abandoned at half time due to a waterlogged pitch.
Kempston had taken a fifth-minute lead through Mark Bunker but it took less than five minutes for Adam Boothby to restore parity.
Play continued until half time in appalling weather conditions and the referee had little choice but to call a halt at before the second half started.
Matt Plumb Eynesbury's manager had no problem with the decision: "The Kempston manager and myself both went out on the pitch a few minutes before the teams were due out for the second half and agreed it would not only be impossible, but probably dangerous to continue."
The match referee agreed with the managers and called it a day, leaving Plumb to look forward to Rovers' first match in nearly a month, against Burton Park Wanderers tonight (Wednesday).
Plumb added: "The pitch has dried out now and prospects are good. We are at full strength and looking to close the gap on the top two in the league.
