SATURDAY could be make or break for Skipton in their battle to stay in Aire-Wharfe League Division Two.

Currently filling the second relegation spot, Skipton travel to Addingham, the side just one place and 24 points above them.

Victory will reduce that gap markedly. Defeat could make it to too great to bridge in the remaining five games.

Skipton certainly have the ability to win the match – they have won two over (Steeton and Kirkstall) of their last four.

And they cruised to victory by eight wickets the last time the sides met, Ben Holderness (4-16) and Gary Owens (3-81) bowling out Addingham for 130.

But Addingham have improved since then and with players like Ted Haggas and Ricky Palacio in good form, they will be looking to make it five wins in their last eight games and take another step towards safety.

Thackley, who only escaped relegation last season because clubs resigned from the league, are all but down, and their cause is unlikely to be helped when they entertain second-placed Ben Rhydding.

The visitors will have half an eye on the match at Adel, where the leaders take on third-placed Follifoot, and for once Ben Rhydding will probably be cheering on Adel to help them put distance between themselves and their chasing rivals.

In-form Hall Park should be too strong for a faltering Leeds Modernians, while Calverley need to find more consistency if they are to beat Kirkstall.

There is an intriguing battle at Tong Park Esholt, where Steeton are the visitors, both sides having threatened to be in the promotion mix at times but having fallen short in key matches.

With Division One leaders Beckwithshaw favourites to repeat last week’s dominating Waddilove Cup final victory over Bilton, it is vital second-placed Burley don't slip up at Ilkley.

Otley, in third, also need a win to keep in the hunt but they face a harder task at Pool, who recently claimed the scalps of the top two, and in skipper Charlie Bell and David Paynter have two of the leading batsmen in the division.

Rawdon, fresh from their triumph over Beckwithshaw, will fancy their chances against inconsistent Guiseley, and Horsforth will be hot favourites to beat Colton, who looked doomed to relegation after just one season in the top flight.

The wide-open scramble for promotion from Division Three has just five games to go.

Saltaire have a healthy 19-point lead and will be expected to beat Bolton Villas but will be a wary of a bowling attack led by Sam Lawrence that successfully defended a total of 80 last week.

Behind them come Olicanian, who have a pack of five clubs within 22 points of them, including Menston, who they face this weekend.

The other four battle it out, with Harden entertaining Green Lane and Bardsey taking on revitalised New Rover.
