WEST Bowling hope to see the benefit of a fortnight off when they tackle Leigh East tomorrow in Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Two.

While the hosts have already been relegated, Bowling still have a faint chance of a play-off berth if they win and other results go their way.

Kyle Moore and Ryan Patchett are back after a three-week rest as they missed the Hull Dockers clash in order to avoid aggravating niggling injuries.

Meanwhile, 16-year-old prop Alex Handol keeps his place in a nod to the future.

Drighlington travel to Crosfields in a must-win fixture as they bid to distance themselves from the relegation zone with only three games to play.

In Division One, Bradford Dudley Hill can only think of what might have been as the demoted hosts face Leigh Miners’ Rangers.

Hill’s relegation was confirmed two weeks ago, but as first-team manager Steve Wright says: “If we had fielded our best team over the whole season I am confident that we would have stayed up.

“We missed Dave Halley and Tony Williams big time, but also Nathan Kitson.

“However, at least 20-year-old centre Daniel Lee – son of former coach Jason – has made himself available late in the season and he is a quality player.”

Wright added: “It has been a case of fine margins for us as we have been in most of the matches.”

In the Yorkshire Men’s League, Queensbury will be aiming to keep pace at the top of the table with a win at Hull Wyke, while Keighley Albion travel to York Acorn in desperate need of a positive result.

There is a crunch derby in Division Two as fourth plays sixth when Odsal Sedbergh face Wibsey Warriors.

Queensbury are in Division One action again on Wednesday when they host York Acorn.
