Craig Elliott was far from happy with Saturday’s postponement at Spennymoor Town, but is hopeful that the temporary setback could prove to be a blessing in disguise in the long run.
The Brewery Field trip was called off following the delay of summer remedial works on Spennymoor’s pitch, with the postponement confirmed less than an hour before last Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Alfreton Town.
It did allow striker Dominic Knowles to get two training sessions in the bank, following pre-season calf troubles, ahead of tonight’s home game against Leamington.
“I am not too happy about the situation,” said Elliott when quizzed on the Spennymoor postponement.
“It’s not something that sits well with me but what can you do?
“You have to accept it and it gave us two training sessions [before the next match].”
