Darlington's match postponed last Sat due to covid in their camp.  They miss their next 2 games before resuming on Boxing Day.  This willl put them furthest behind, so even more reason for our abandoned score to stand as a result.  Common sense!
United we stand..................

Just announced that the game will be replayed in February.

https://www.bostonunited.co.uk/news/darlington-fixture-to-be-replayed-2590463.html

Boston United will re-visit Darlington in February after the National League ordered a replay of November's abandoned clash.

The Pilgrims led 2-0 after 87 minutes in the northeast on November 10 when home defender Nicky Hunt sustained a serious injury.

United put forward what they believed to be a strong case to be awarded all three points, particularly in a Covid-19-condensed season, but the National League board deemed that a full rematch will be required.

United are disappointed with the outcome and did consider an appeal, but given the detailed submissions already made, it was felt the decision would not be overturned.

The Pilgrims will therefore visit Blackwell Meadows on Tuesday February 16 (kick-off 7.45pm).

I get slated when I say it's not a level playing field.  I am told it's a conspiracy theory.  Well explain this decision.  We are still not liked.

Completely on top in the match, no blame with the injury, help save the player's life... and this is the thanks you get. Darlington should be totally ashamed!

Love to see the explanation behind this. Crap decision but under covid even worse. DFC hang your heads.

Not sure that Darlington are to blame for this decision, it was the National League Board that made the decision. Totally agree that it is ridiculous given there were only 3 minutes of the 90 to play (in fact it was gone 90 minutes before game was actually abandoned), BUFC were 2-0 up and Darlington were down to 10 men and so little chance of getting 2 goals required to even draw, congestion of games this season and travelling expenses.

Let's go there and thrash them, it's what they deserve if they put in a case for a rematch.

Unbelievable! Match abandoned about a quarter of an hour into time added on. Who are these people?

50-50 split on their board apart from one t###er called darlogramps. He sounds like a real piece of work. Let’s hope the lge don’t regret what they have done they have set a real precedent. Imagine this situation, need a point to get promoted and losing 1-0 with a couple of minutes to go".........................

Don't think BUFC will ever get a fair deal from the authorities, this is the most ridiculous decision I have ever seen, as Dave says what a precedent this has set no team will ever have to lose again by simply ensuring the game is abandoned. What a bunch of ar$£HOLES.

What did I tell you! The fat rats on the Conference board have finally broke cover. I hope CE gets the message..., this is where "respect and admiration" gets you. People walk all over you. And to think our medical staff spent over an hour on the pitch caring for their stricken player.

If they have to replay it then surely its only fair to start the game on 87 min with us leading 2 nil?
