BOSS Tom Killick admitted any more postponements would be problematic for Poole Town’s promotion push after wet weather had again wiped out yesterday's fixtures.

Dolphins had their home clash with Banbury United called off on Friday evening with the sodden Tatnam pitch deemed unplayable.

And while Poole’s manager believes his side can cope with a gruelling schedule of 24 Southern Premier matches in the final 13 weeks of the season, Killick recognises the need for an end to the recent deluge.

He said: “Playing two games a week isn’t ridiculous and when you are enjoying the good form we are at the moment, you want to play as many games as possible. It is tough but we will cope.

“If it becomes more than two games a week then we will have more of an issue but, hopefully, we have come through the worst of it now and won’t lose any more games.”

Bournemouth Poppies’ fixture at Fareham Town also bit the dust on Friday while fixtures at Bashley and Wimborne Town followed yesterday morning.

Hamworthy’s Wessex League derby with Verwood was called off while Christchurch have now gone more than a month without a competitive fixture after their trip to AFC Portchester was postponed.

Meanwhile, Killick confirmed that Cherries keeper Benji Buchel had signed another month-long loan deal with Poole but that the Dean Court outfit had an immediate recall clause. The 24-year-old conceded just once in three appearances during his first month at Tatnam.
