Following on from two incomplete games due to the weather, leaders Hanging Heaton will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the Bradford League Premier Division tomorrow away at strugglers, Pudsey Congs.

Having previously won five in a row prior to the two rain affected games, Hanging Heaton are in a good position to continue their great form this season. They will be hoping that David Stiff can carry on his fine form with the ball this season to aid yet another Tewits win.

Third-placed Pudsey St Lawrence will be looking to close the gap on Hanging Heaton at the top with victory against Cleckheaton. With second-placed Townville playing East Bierley, a team in the lower section of the league, the Saints will want to take maximum points from their game. Townville themselves will be hoping for results to go their way to aid their own push for the top of the league.

The duo of Conor Harvey and Jack Hughes, with 18 wickets apiece, have certainly proved useful for Townville and will be hoping for more of the same in this fixture.

Farsley entertain Lightcliffe and will be hoping to get back to winning ways after a couple of games succumbing to the weather as well as a defeat by Pudsey St Lawrence.

Farsley will need their batsmen to hit top form if they are to have a positive end to the season. With the ball they will undoubtedly turn to Christopher Henry who has bagged 13 wickets for the season and been their greatest threat.

In a middle-of-the-table clash between New Farnley and Woodlands, Farnley will fancy their chances as Woodlands are currently on a three-match losing streak.

Key to the cause for New Farnley is leading run-scorer, Simon Lambert with 398 runs for the season so far.

Bottom-of-the-table Batley come up against Bradford & Bingley hoping to salvage some pride in what has been a difficult season.

Bradford and Bingley, on the other hand, will be looking to secure the points to move them up the table. Batley will look to Muhammad Abubakar Khan, their leading run scorer for the season, to guide their innings when they come to bat.
