Peterborough Sports have postponed their Southern League Premier Division Central trip to play-off rivals Rushall Olympic tomorrow (January 8) because of a surge of covid cases in the camp.

It would have been a battle between third and fourth. Sports’ right-back Liam Bennett has also been recalled by Cambridge United and is expected to travel to their third round FA Cup tie at Newcastle United.

There’s plenty of non-league action elsewhere tomorrow with in-form Yaxley chasing a sixth Northern Premier Midlands Division win in a row at home to Chasetown (3pm). Play-off chasing Stamford host Sporting Khalsa.
