KENDAL Town's game with Ossett United became the latest in a long line of fixtures across the Northern Premier League to be postponed following the coronavirus pandemic which has hit the country.

Both teams were set to play in this big relegation game at The St & B Accountants Stadium.

However Kendal decided to call the game off after some volunteers were reporting of having flu-like symptoms.

The team was also scheduled to have played Ramsbottom United away on Tuesday night.

Kendal’s last game saw them draw 1-1 at Pickering Town in a big relegation clash.

The Mintcakes currently remain five points clear of danger.

And after losing 2-1 to second placed Ramsbottom United, Kendal were keen to pick up a result against their relegation rivals in what was a long Tuesday night trip for the team.

Both teams made a slow start to the game with Sean Paterson creating a half chance after he fired a tame shot at the Pickering keeper, while the hosts' best opportunity fell to Nathan Perks who blazed over from distance.

However as the first half wore on, both keepers were left with little to do while there were good attacking moments which saw players from either side getting caught offside on various occasions.

Pickering made a positive start to the second half after Flynn Mc Naughton fired the ball into the side netting before Jackson Jowett forced Morgan Bacon into action.

Kendal though began to take control and opened the scoring after 64 minutes when a ball across the penalty area from Kieran Maguire fell to Sean Paterson who scored from close range.

Pickering responded two minutes later when Nathan Perks scored after he found time and space in the penalty area before firing the ball past Morgan Bacon.

Kendal pressed for the winning goal with Christian Sloan, Emil Jaaskelainen and Callum Fawcett testing the Pickering keeper.

However the game from that point quietened off as the points were shared with Kendal happier with the result than Pickering.
