Torrential rain sees Salford game delayed by an hour as Class of 92’s side get possible advantage over promotion rivals

SALFORD CITY'S final League Two match of the season against Leyton Orient has been delayed due to torrential rain.

The match was scheduled to take place at 3pm on Saturday afternoon but instead has been pushed back to 4pm due to the weather.

The club, who are owned by Manchester United legends Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and David Beckham, currently sit ninth in the table heading into the final day.

In order to make the final play-off place they need to win their match on Saturday afternoon and hope both Forest Green Rovers and Exeter City to drop points.

As a result, the delay to the game could be a blessing in disguise for Salford as they will know in the second half of their match whether or not a victory will see them move into the play-offs at the latest possible stage.

The current play-off places are held by Morecambe, Newport County, Tranmere Rovers and Forest Green.

Forest Green travel to 18th place Oldham Athletic, while Exeter host lowly Barrow.
