Colin CatonBALA Town boss Colin Caton is blaming the Welsh Premier League's early-season fixture planning for the current backlog.
"I can't believe we didn't play midweek games at the start of the season," he told the Denbighshire Free Press.
"I can't believe they gave a full list of fixtures until January 14 and expect every game to be on!
"There should have been two-or-three area league fixtures in August and September."
League secretary John Deakin is currently promoting his plans for a summer season but Caton is not a fan of this proposal.
"I'm not really for it, but something's got to happen," he added.
"No-one's going to finish by the 15th (of January), the Welsh Premier League has got to extend the season.
"It's impossible to force the league clubs to travel everywhere in Wales. It's going to force people to make deadlines that are nigh-on impossible.
"Common sense has got to prevail. There's 12 inches of snow in Bala - it's just unbelievable."
Bala are due to be at Airbus UK Broughton on Boxing Day, but that fixture is almost certain to be postponed, leaving seven games to complete before the split.
