WINSFORD United's match with Bootle tonight has been postponed.

The away clash, in the North West Counties Premier Division, has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

A rearranged date for the fixture is awaited.

Blues, instead, will look ahead to hosting Ashton Athletic on Saturday.

Ashton ended the weekend as the division's top scorers and in sixth place after a fifth straight league win saw them overcome Avro 2-1.

United, on the other hand, were defeated 4-1 at Charnock Richard.

They conceded three goals in 10 minutes midway through the first half, two to Carl Grimshaw and the third to Lewis Haydock.

Samuel Matthews provided a lifeline four minutes before half time when h headed home from close range but Oliver Oxley's 56th-minute strike sealed for the hosts a fourth win of term that left Blues in 16th place.
