BAILDON need a five-point win at Sheffield Medicals tomorrow to have any chance of staying up in Yorkshire Division Three.

But who would back against them achieving a maximum after the way they have been playing for the past 15 weeks?

Robbie Hill’s team looked dead and buried after their 29-0 defeat at Northallerton on January 6.

But since then Baildon have won five out of 12 matches and suffered narrow defeats in four other matches to take the survival fight to the last day of the scheduled season.

A bonus-point victory in the steel city would mean that Skipton would need two points from their last three matches to send Baildon down along with Stocksbridge.

“I could not have asked for any more from the lads than they have shown me since Christmas,” admitted Hill.

“They have been fantastic and we have showed real improvement, but some things have also gone against us over the last four weeks.

“However, we can definitely hold our heads up, whether or not we are relegated.”

Baildon are missing scrum half Ollie Williams tomorrow due to concussion, which Hill calls a real pity, but have Marcus Dracup available to add some experience.

Skipton are at already-promoted Old Otliensians.

The latter’s neighbours Otley, who are 11th, complete their National League Two North programme at fourth-placed Stourbridge, knowing that a win would put them tenth,
