Stones saw both league games postponed last week because of the wet weather over Easter

Wealdstone will hope for better luck with the weather when they host Bath City in the National League South on Saturday after seeing their entire Easter schedule washed out.

Stones had been due to play host to East Thurrock United on Good Friday and visit Hemel Hempstead Town on Easter Monday, but both games fell foul of the latest wet weather.

It means Bobby Wilkinson’s men will have not played for almost two weeks prior to hosting Bath, but the Grosvenor Vale outfit hopes that counts in their favour.

Wealdstone are without a win in each of their last five matches in all competitions, a run that has seen them exit the FA Trophy, as well as fall away from the play-off places in the league.

Stones, though, will still be keen to finish the season with a flourish and hope that starts with a win at home to the Romans on Saturday.

When the sides met earlier in the season, Wilkinson’s men played out a goalless draw on the road.
