The Southern League Central Division One leaders were 1-0 down at the time, having conceded an own goal from a 35th minute corner.

The match had been in doubt and the referee even moved the kick-off back to 3.30pm to clear standing water. But, having started , the rain continued to come down and the pitch became waterlogged, leaving the referee no option.

Bedford now prepare for a trip to Stotfold on Saturday, who sit in 10th place.

Neither of Bedford's nearest challengers took full advantage of the abandonment as second-placed North Leigh lost 2-1 at Hertford Town while third-placed Waltham Abbey drew 3-3 at Kidlington.
