VAUXHALL Motors will head into 2011 facing a huge fixture backlog as a result of the big freeze.
The Motormen are already behind on their Blue Square North fixtures due to their run in the FA Cup earlier in the season.
And the recent sub-zero temperatures have resulted in a series of postponements which have left the Rivacre Park club with a string of rearranged fixtures to play in the new year.
Saturday’s match at Solihull Moors was the latest match to fall victim to the cold weather which has gripped the UK.
With no improvement due over the coming days, there is every chance more games could be called off.
Vauxhall are scheduled to play four times in nine days over the festive period and expect to play twice a week throughout January.
They are due to host Manchester side Droylsden on Boxing Day (3pm kick-off) and Motors chairman Alan Bartlam hopes a bumper festive crowd will brave the elements and make their way down to Rivacre Park.
Bartlam said: “The game with Droylsden marks the start of a crucial period in this season’s programme and this is now the time for us to push on if we are to make great strides into 2011.
“We have lost only once in the league since the start of early September and, because we face festive games against Droylsden twice plus Guiseley and Workington, all clubs with an eye on the play-offs, we need to show that we can more than match them on our day.”
Weather permitting, Motors go to Guiseley next Tuesday (December 28) before visiting Droylsden on New Year’s Day and hosting Workington on Monday, January 3. All are 3pm kick-offs.
