COLNE boss Nigel Coates will be hoping the wintry weather settles so his side can kickstart 2012.

Monday’s local derby at home to high-flying Barnoldswick Town was postponed meaning the Reds have played just twice, in victories over Congleton Town and Silsden AFC, since the start of December.

Tomorrow’s visitors to the XLCR Stadium at Holt House are struggling AFC Liverpool who currently sit second bottom in the NWC Premier Division.

Elsewhere, Nelson had earned consecutive 3-2 wins against Ashton Town and Cheadle Town but that momentum was halted abruptly by a succession of postponements.

In fact Paul Paynter’s side haven’t played a First Division fixture since that last victory on November 19th. They travel to Daisy Hill’s New Sirs Stadium tomorrow hoping to carry on where they left off.
