Underbank Rangers will this weekend be hoping to maintain their lead at the top of the Pennine League Second Division table and do their points difference a power of good in the process.
The men from The Cross host bottom club Littleborough on Saturday, well aware second-placed CK Vikings are breathing down their neck and capable of taking the title if they win their three games in hand.
But with so little to separate the leading duo, points difference could ultimately prove the deciding factor, which adds to the importance of what should prove a routine home win for Rangers.
There are also home assignments for Huddersfield’s two Championship I clubs.
Newsome Panthers face arguably the tougher task as they host unbeaten leaders Doncaster Toll Bar, while St Joseph’s will be hoping to make home advantage count with a success over mid-table Bentley Good Companions which would take them away from the division’s relegation zone,
Lindley Swifts are another side on home territory for their First Division clash with fellow mid-table team Cutsyke Raiders, while Emley Moor also don’t have to travel for their mid-table tussle with Dearne Valley Bulldogs.
Division V side Slaithwaite Saracens are on the road, although they face a relatively short trip to Hanging Heaton, while third-placed Meltham All Blacks look to maintain their Division VI West title challenge at home to second-placed Worth Village in an eagerly-awaited clash.
