WITH the snowy weather postponing last weekend's match, Wharfedale will look to keep up their momentum as they travel to Macclesfield this Saturday.

"There was an inch of snow on top of the pitch, it was down to minus 10 degrees during the week and with the forecast to reach no higher than one or two degrees, it was a done deal that we weren't going to play.

"Stourbridge were due to travel here at 8am on Saturday, so as a courtesy to them we called the game off at Friday lunchtime," Feeley said. "We had no other option than to call it off."

The postponed match at the Avenue has been re-scheduled to Saturday, March 16.

"We would have like to have played because we had some momentum after two really good wins on the bounce - against top of the league Hull Ionians and Preston, who are difficult to beat at home.

"So we'll have to train well this week to carry that momentum over to this Saturday."

This Saturday's opponent, Macclesfield, are second from bottom of National League Two North.

"Their position in the league belies their ability," said Feeley. "They score points regularly and are competing, but they've been narrowly losing games.

"They play a quick brand of rugby," he added. "They're a very young team, but are quick across the park.

"We've got to control the ruck, which is an area of the game we've been controlling the last two weeks. We've got to carry that over to this weekend."

Going into this Saturday's match, in-form Ben Blackwell, who recently won National League Two North Player of the Week, will face a fitness test after suffering a knee injury against Preston.

"Other than that we have a clean bill of health," said Feeley. "Although the Stourbridge had to be called off, some of the boys will have appreciated the week off.

"There were a lot of sore bodies after the Preston game, as the artificial surface there was very unforgiving."

This Saturday's match at Macclesfield kicks off at 3pm.
