BRADFORD Dudley Hill have been drawn at Millom in the second round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup a week tomorrow – and don’t intend to make the same mistake as last July.

The clubs were Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Two rivals then, and the Cumbrians won the home match 20-6.

It was one of only five league wins in 2017 for Millom, who were relegated while Dudley Hill achieved promotion via the play-offs, but Hill’s first-team manager Steve Wright remembered: "We only travelled up there with 15 or 16 players, and we had a crisis meeting afterwards about player commitment.

"It put us on the road to promotion. You set off up there about 8.30am, and availability can prove a problem with work etc, but I don't think that it will be an issue this time.

"It will only be our second game of what is in essence pre-season and everyone wants to impress the new coaching staff ahead of our first league match next month."

However, Wright added: "We won the home match 42-6 against Millom last March, but they are always tough on their own ground, aren't really like a Division Three team and have had a couple of players who have been training with Workington Town, including Ethan Kelly."

Millom, who are the oldest amateur rugby league team in the world, having been formed in 1873, beat Scottish champions Strathmore Silverbacks 36-18 in the Challenge Cup first round last weekend in Cumbria.

Four of the five Cumbrian sides in the hat (Millom, Kells, Distington and Askam) were drawn at home, with Wath Brow Hornets being the only ones to have to travel.

Meanwhile, in the Pennine League, Queensbury will be hoping to extend their 2018 winning streak tomorrow when they welcome Division Two Central basement side Wakefield City.

Sixth-placed Bury are coming off a convincing cup win over Wyke.

In contrast, bottom club Wakefield remain winless, and this weekend’s game may be damage limitation for the struggling club.

Clayton will be hoping to claim a scalp and keep in the running for the play-offs when they face second-placed Woodhouse Warriors at home.

Fourth-placed Clayton have a four-point buffer between themselves and fifth-placed Wyke.

Tomorrow's game will be a stern test for Clayton against a Woodhouse side which has lost just once in the league.

Wyke will be hoping to bounce back from being dumped out of the BARLA National Cup by Queensbury at Wortley Dragons.

The black and whites need to win to have any chance of keeping pace with the top four and securing a play-off berth.

Lowly Birkenshaw Blue Dogs, hoping to record just their fourth win of the season, welcome third-placed Eastmoor Dragons.

The only other fixture in Division Two Central is an all-Leeds affair, with top side Oulton Raiders playing ninth-placed Beeston Broncos.

In the Championship Division, Brighouse Rangers will be aiming for a late surge towards the play-offs at Upton.

Seventh-placed Rangers need to win all their remaining games and hope that other results go in their favour to stand any chance of making the top four, while a defeat would spell the end of their season.
