Sporting hoping for off-field promotion boost

Screen shot 2014-02-23 at 17.36.38FC Sporting Keighley are keeping their fingers crossed that they will be six points better off tomorrow evening, without playing a game.
The Craven League Division Three promotion chasers have been awarded three points for their abandoned match against Sutton in October.
They were 4-0 ahead when the referee called a halt and the league committee have now awarded them a win but the table is not yet updated.

They fielded an illegible player but will make their case to the West Riding County FA that he had been signed.
Should they succeed, it will turn the promotion race on its head.
Sporting are currently fourth but six more points would push them up to second, ahead of Keighley rivals Oxenhope Rec Thirds and Broomhill, who they are due to play a week on Saturday.
