Perfection isn't enough to top the pile for Thackley and Albion Sports
The Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division is taking shape, and two of the four local representatives go into the weekend looking to secure top spot.
Thackley and Albion Sports both have 100 per cent records, having taken nine points from their first three games.
However, neither are currently topping the pile, with goal difference separating five clubs at the higher end.
Of the local pair, Thackley face the most difficult test on Saturday as they must travel to one of the other joint leaders.
The Dennyboys are fourth as they head to Athersley Recreation, who are second.
Albion separate them as they are third following their 2-0 home win over Parkgate on Wednesday night.
Kulwinder Sandhu’s men are also on the road but their hosts are Maltby Main, who have banked just three points from their three fixtures.
Town are hosting Basford United, who were held to a 0-0 draw by Sedge in midweek.
That was the Clayborn outfit’s first point of the season, at the third time of asking, and they are preparing for a visit from Bridlington Town on Saturday.
Brid finished third last season and are one of the sides tipped for promotion this term, so it will be a testing afternoon for Sedge.
Town suffered the frustration of an abandonment in midweek when a floodlight failure resulted in their home game against Glasshoughton Welfare being cut short, so they have only played two games.
In Division One, Eccleshill United have played more fixtures than most of their rivals, and new boss Lee Duxbury has been through every emotion.
The Eagles host Dronfield Town this weekend, having won two, drawn one and lost one of their four starts.
Silsden’s positive beginning in the North West Counties League Premier Division has petered out a little.
After two victories, they have drawn two and lost one in the league and been knocked out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle.
The Cobbydalers need a win at Abbey Hey on Satrday to stay three points clear of their hosts, who have a game in hand.
