Askam could move off the bottom of Division Two of the National Conference League if they overcome Clock Face Miners at Fallowfield Park tomorrow and Shaw Cross lose at high riding West Bowling.

Stand-in coach Tammy Tyson said: “We are quietly confident after two decent results of late. Fifteen of the lads who put up a good show at Beverley are in contention, along with Tom Hopkins, Brad Kavanagh, Alex Brailsford, Gareth Richards and Luke Duncalf.

"We will give it our best shot and we are quite pleased with the progress we are making - Barrow Island at home was a great boost for the lads and we can do it again tomorrow.”

Tyson's son Kris is still unavailable, along with Brad Jackson and Joe Satterthwaite, while Ben Lewney faces a fitness test.

Barrow Island will look to halt a run of two successive defeats that has dented their automatic promotion hopes when they travel to East Leeds, with them still in the race for the play-offs. Joe Spenceley and Scott Hadwin are expected to return while Dan White is unavailable.

“We have hit a bit of a low, but we will bounce back. We've had two bad defeats, at Askam and home to West Bowling, but should be ok at Leeds who are third bottom,” said coach Joe Elliott.

Millom travel to Eastmoor Dragons in Division Three without Noah Robinson, Hanley Dawson, Johny Hodgson and Dom O'Brien while Astin Mossop is on international training duties. Back to boost the ranks are Ross Brooks, Dane Kelly, Charlie Emslie and Connor Terrill.

Coach Tom Sibley said “We have the 17 sorted and must win this one and build on it till the ends of the season, Training has gone well this week but we need to start winning and be focused throughout.”

Roose Pioneers look to get revenge over Bamber Bridge in Division Three of the North West Men's League when they travel to the Preston area. Pioneers give a debut to former Barrow Island player Lewis Sayle. Also in the squad are Scott Low, Sol Doherty and Harrison O'Brien. Not available are Dan and Aide White, along with Chris Holmes and Mike Backhouse.

Joint coach Backhouse said: “We are chopping and changing each week, which is not good but that's the game. We are still a relatively young side and it will come good.”
