Wroxham's scheduled match at Aveley was postponed yesterday evening due to a waterlogged playing surface.
Recent downpours had left the Essex side's pitch saturated and the match was called off after a 6pm pitch inspection performed by a local referee.
Aveley share their Mill Field ground with Ryman League Premier Grays Athletic, who saw their match on Wednesday night postponed – so the news didn't exactly come as a huge surprise.
Wroxham, who netted through Jack Garrod and Jamie Forshaw, lost the corresponding fixture 5-2 against Aveley. They now face the prospect of a 250-mile round trip to Essex in midweek later in the season.
Wroxham remain 20th in the league, perilously close to the northern division's relegation places, after a run of 14 games without a win.

Yachtsmen captain Andrew Howell commented that this season has been testing for him and also for manager Stewart Larter as they are not used to being in such a lowly position.
Wroxham's skipper still believes there is a belief that the players will get out of the situation they find themselves in.
