Kendal Town's latest matchsaw them make the relatively short trip down the M6 to play bottom of the table Skelmersdale United in what was a big game at the bottom of the league.

Going into the game Kendal were second from bottom and desperate for a result after their heavy defeat to Widnes, while Skelmersdale were also in trouble at the foot of the table.

With Storm Deidre on the attack playing conditions proved to be horrendous. However in the end the game had to be abandoned after Skelmersdale player Oliver Van Veen sustained a nasty injury.

The game at that stage was evenly poised at one apiece before the injury left referee Mark Ryder with no other choice but to call the game off.

From reports and after seeing the video footage this was obviously the correct decision - a player’s welfare is far more important than any football game.

I am led to believe Van Veen was given the all clear at hospital which is great news and hopefully he will be back on the football field soon.

Away games are alien to me as I don’t tend to travel with the team but, going off the reports, Kendal played much better tahn recently, especially in the first half.

It was a miracle the game was on in the first place in light of the weather conditions.

Kendal remain in the biottom two.

These are very difficult times for the club and the team faces such an important set of fixtures over the Christmas and New Year period.

Next up for Kendal (weather permitting) is a tough game against Colwyn Bay. Kendal played Saturday's opponents in the opening game of the season and lost 1-0.

Kendal need a good result and quickly as they look to get out of trouble!
