DIVISION One leaders Otley travel to Follifoot tomorrow, only ahead of their opponents by virtue of having picked up six more bonus points.

Apart from their one defeat at the hands of Rawdon, Otley have looked solid with bat and ball this season and will start as favourites to extend their lead, as Follifoot have mainly come up against sides from the lower half of the table.

The last time Follifoot faced one of the title contenders – Burley on the opening day of the season – they were skittled out for just 69. Even against struggling Guiseley, they only got home by two wickets with five balls to spare.

But Otley will also be aware that Follifoot have a match-winner in Istikhar Hussain, who already has 20 wickets following last week’s 6-41 against Pool and who was pivotal in their promotion last season.

Burley are sitting handily to challenge the top two and could be too strong for Pool. It should be a fascinating duel between James Rosewarne and Joshua Challenger, two of the most successful overseas players this season with 16 wickets apiece.

Ryan Sharrocks’ return from Pool has boosted Horsforth, and with Ben Heritage full of confidence following last weekend’s century, they should make it three wins in a row at Adel.

Rawdon were on the end of Heritage’s fine innings and a four-wicket haul by Sharrocks, but they will fancy their chances of getting back to winning ways at home to Ilkley.

Last week’s defeat by Otley saw Guiseley drop to bottom of the table and now they face out-of-sorts defending champions Beckwithshaw, who are only three points above them in the relegation spots.

Having edged past Saltaire last week to stay top of Division Two, Tong Park Esholt face another potentially tricky match against Collingham, with the ever-present threat of Toby Jacklin’s bowling.

Second placed Addingham, who have found a match-winning overseas player in Alex Hentschke, should have a more comfortable afternoon against a Calverley side struggling to find their form.

Hall Park have grown in confidence as the campaign has gone on and will fancy their chances of keeping up the pressure on the top two with victory against Ben Rhydding.

Saltaire will also be favourites to keep pace with the front runners when they travel to Steeton, the only winless side in the division.

A six-wicket haul from Ed Broadley helped Olicanian scrape victory in a low scoring match at Ben Rhydding last week and they will be tested again by Kirkstall.

Division Three leaders Green Lane and New Rover are the only two unbeaten sides in the league and it is hard to see either of them slipping up against Alwoodley and Shadwell respectively.

Both will be hoping that Menston can do them a favour by denting the challenge of Bardsey, but that could depend on taming in-form Tom Franklin and Eddie Clayton, both fresh from scoring centuries.

Harden and Bolton Villas can afford no slip-ups if they want to keep the leading pack in their sights but neither should have too much difficulty beating struggling Old Leodiensians and St Chads respectively.

Defeat by Green Lane dropped Thackley into the bottom two, but they are only five points behind Skipton who they meet tomorrow and who have lost their last three games.
