Kendal Town's game against Kidsgrove Athletic proved to be a wash out after the game was abandoned at half time.

Torrential rainfall made the Kendal Town playing surface unplayable.

In fairness to the referee he gave the game every chance and at least one half of football was played.

Kendal will be happy the game was abandoned as they were 3-1 down at the break. That said, Kendal looked dangerous going forward with Steven Yawson causing problems for the visitors' defence.

Two out of the three goals were unstoppable efforts, although Kendal scored through a good finish from Billy Akrigg.

Kendal showed plenty of positive signs going forward and certainly didn’t look like a team that are fighting relegation. However, the Mintcakes are now four points adrift from safety after Glossop drew 2-2 at Market Drayton Town.

Glossop could have been six clear of Kendal before they conceded a late goal, so at least the gap is not larger.

Kendal need to start winning games. Their last league win came back in November when they defeated Glossop North End. And their last home league win was four months ago when they edged out Skelmersdale United 1-0.

The irony is that some of the performances have deserved more reward.

That said Kendal are still in with a fighting chance of survival, although their next two games are away from home where they travel to play third-placed Radcliffe FC on Saturday before they travel to play Market Drayton Town the following weekend.

Radcliffe will be a very difficult game for Kendal. But the game against Market Drayton Town and then the home match with Glossop North End on Saturday,February 16 are probably now the biggest games of Kendal’s season.

Both those sides are in and around the bottom half of the table and if Kendal are to survive they have to capitalise and pick up maximum points.

Off the pitch the club announced that it would be holding a supporters meeting on Monday, February 11, at 7pm. The meeting is an opportunity for the fans to ask the chairman and committee questions over the current situation at the club.
