King's Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell admits further rest for injury doubt Dan Quigley was the only consolation of his side's match being called off at Coalville Town.
The Linnets manager was gutted when his third-placed troops' trip to the league leaders fell foul of a pitch inspection early yesterday afternoon.
Freezing conditions in Leicestershire put paid to the second attempt at playing the much talked about clash between the Evo-Stik Division One South high–fliers at Owen Street, which was first postponed in January.
However, midfielder Quigley, who was rated at 50/50 for last night's fixture with a knee problem, is now almost certain to be fit when the two heavyweights do battle later this term – news which pleases his manager immensely.
Setchell said: 'I'm really disappointed the game got called off, it was a good time for us to play them.

'It was a good chance to apply pressure but on the flip-side of the coin it was a chance for them to put some distance between themselves and us.
'But I was looking forward to it and the players were looking forward to it. We're in good form, they're not in such good form, so we had a chance to send out a big statement.

'The Quigz (Quigley) scenario is definitely a positive though. He may have been fit but it would have been a little bit of a gamble to have played him last night.
'He can now get some more rest and treatment and he'll be in contention for Saturday. I'm confident he'll be involved at some point.'
Lynn, unbeaten in 11 league matches, will find out soon when they will face the Ravens.
The fixture looks likely to be rearranged for the back end of April – a spell which could see Setchell's men playing promotion rivals in all four of their last matches.
Next up for Lynn, after training tonight, is the visit of play-off chasing Leek Town on Saturday.
