The Republic of Ireland international was scheduled to make his first appearance in seven months in a second-string outing against Manchester United at Northwich Victoria's Victoria Ground on Thursday.

However, heavy rain forced the match to be postponed just before kick-off and left Duff still seeking his first taste of action since suffering a serious foot injury in April.

"It was disappointing to see the game called off," the 28 year old told the club's official website.

"I was looking forward to getting a run out because it's been so long.

"I can't wait to get back out there with the lads. It's been a frustrating seven months.

"But I'm still looking forward to coming back and hopefully I'll get a practice match under my belt soon."
