CREWE FC were left kicking their heels after a second successive weekend without a match.
Ian O'Reilly's men had been due to visit Daten in a League Cup tie but their opponents were involved in a cup replay in another competition, which took precedence.
'It was frustrating as we didn't need another Saturday without a game,' said O'Reilly.
'We need to keep playing at this stage of the season and we haven't even had the bad weather yet, but we're going to end up with four or five midweek games at the end of the season. It's out of our hands. We'll just have to get on with it.'
