United’s last league outing came when they played out an entertaining 3-3 home draw with Billingshurst.

Since then, Foster’s side have been frustrated by the winter weather, with last weekend’s away fixture at Oakwood called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

With their midweek game against Midhurst also under threat due to the weather, it has been a frustrating first month for the Mavericks boss.

Despite the lack of games, Foster highlighted that he has had more timed integrate his ideas into the team. He said “ It has given me a chance to work with the players more in training, in which we are lucky to have access to the fantastic 4G pitch at Sir Robert Woodard Academy.

If United’s midweek meeting with Midhurst is called off, then they won’t have to endure much more of a wait. Foster said “ We will however definitely have a game Saturday, as Steyning have their amazing 4G facility.”

The next two fixtures could prove vital in terms of where the Mavericks finish in the league standings come May, Foster added “ These are two games that will be a huge battle. Midhurst, like us are fighting down the bottom and Steyning at the top will want to extend their lead”.

United currently sit 15th in the league standings, just four points ahead of bottom side St Francis Rangers.
