IT is crunch time in Division Two with the top two, Hall Park and Tong Park Esholt, going head to head tomorrow.

Hall Park have won their last six matches to take a one-point lead over Tong Park, who suffered one set-back in that period, a shock defeat by bottom club Calverley.

Spectators will hope that the match is as entertaining as when the sides met in early May. Tom Lester, who needs just 32 more runs for 500, hit a season-best 100 not out in Hall Park’s 244-4 but Tong Park edged it with an unbeaten 99 from Gareth Wilkinson.

Both sides will be cheering on Olicanian in the hope that they can slow the charge of third-placed Collingham but it’s a big ask.

Collingham have a formidable attack, led by Toby Jacklin who has 48 wickets under his belt and took 5-18 when Olicanian were skittled out for 77 earlier in the season.

And their batting line-up, headed by Charlie Swallow and Jack Harrison, who have 1,149 runs between them, can savage any bowling.

The only bowler to match Jacklin’s haul is Addingham’s Alex Hentschke and he can help them get their promotion challenge back on course after two setbacks when they entertain out-of-sorts Kirkstall.

Calverley can climb off the bottom if they beat fellow strugglers Leeds Modernians while Steeton will seek to build on last week’s victory over Modernians but will find Ben Rhydding a much tougher opponent.

Saltaire travel to Colton looking for a repeat of the comfortable win they enjoyed earlier in the campaign.

The Division One title is starting to look like a two-horse race with both Otley and Burley odds on to win their matches against Adel and North Leeds respectively.

Rawdon certainly haven’t written off their chances of overtaking the top two and in Marcus Berryman, who has scored 473 runs and taken 35 wickets, they have a proven match-winner. They should certainly be too strong for relegation-threatened Beckwithshaw.

There will be plenty to play for as bottom of the heap Guiseley tackle Pool who are still too close the drop zone for comfort.

In contrast, Ilkley and Horsforth can both relax and enjoy their encounter with only pride at stake.

Bolton Villas hopes of getting into the Division Three promotion mix suffered a set-back last week against second-placed Bardsey so nothing less than victory is needed tomorrow against leaders New Rover.

Green Lane are just 11 points off the pace and should maintain their challenge against Menston who have only won one of their last eight matches.

Skipton have the unenviable task of trying to tame Bardsey’s fire-power which is led by Eddie Clayton whose 754 runs have come at an average of 94.25. But Skipton also have an in-form batsman in Ben Holderness who has 623 runs to his name.

Thackley can go a long way towards ensuring their safety with a win over bottom side Old Leodiensians, while Harden face a tricky trip to St Chads, who are on a five-match winning streak.
