The SSE National League Three North table makes pretty grim reading for anyone associated with Bradford & Bingley.

With five matches left, the Bees are second from bottom with 29 points and need to climb two places to avoid demotion.

However, there is one saving grace – they have an easier run-in than three of their relegation rivals.

The only top-five club they have yet to meet are third-placed Sale, whereas Percy Park, who have seven games left, have all of the top five to play, and Penrith and Billingham have to meet three of the leading quintet.

“It is going to be tough,” said Bees forwards’ coach Ronnie Kelly. “We need to win at least three matches.”

Some bonus points wouldn’t go amiss either, and a win on Saturday at Westoe would keep the belief.
