PORTLAND United became the latest team to suffer a postponement at Fareham Town after the Creeksiders’ pitch waterlogged.

With heavy midweek rain and another helping overnight into Saturday, the Cams Alder Stadium surface was deemed unfit for play after an inspection.

Fareham said on social media: “Our local referee has deemed the pitch unplayable for our @WessexLeague match against @PortlandUnited.”

It means Portland will likely face a lengthy Tuesday night trip, while due to postponements Fareham with 20 games have only played 52 per cent of their league matches with just two months of the season remaining.

Ninth-placed Portland must wait to attempt to halt a run of five winless matches in the Velocity Wessex League Premier Division, stretching back to a 6-0 win over Lymington in mid-January.

Kyle Critchell’s men are next in action on Saturday away to promotion-chasing AFC Portchester.

Portland's reserve game against Wimborne Town Reserves in the Dorset Premier League has also been postponed for the same reason.
