Aylesbury United boss Tony Joyce is desperate to see today’s (Saturday) match at North Greenford United go ahead as his side are already six games behind some teams.

United, who have failed to kick a ball for two weeks, are hopeful of getting back into action against North Greenford United in the Calor League this afternoon, after their previous league game at home to AFC Hayes was called off.

Joyce said: “I was optimistic that the Hayes match would go ahead however it was called off mid-morning, so that allowed us to do an extended training session.

“I am hoping the North Greenford game will get the go-ahead this weekend.

“We are six games behind on some teams in the division and although we are well-placed at the moment, we are looking to consolidate our league position and aiming to improve.”

Joyce added that he felt his squad had overachieved so far this season.

He said: “At the start of the season, your first thought is that you will take fourth from bottom!

“I am very pleased with how the season has gone so far and being honest about it we have done better than I expected.

“Our new aim is to finish in the top ten this season and I think we are more than capable of doing that.”
