BRADFORD Salem were 'nilled' the last time they met Old Brodleians but are confident of pulling off a coupon buster in the re-match tomorrow at Hipperholme.

Old Brods, who are second in Yorkshire Division One, having drawn 13-13 at leaders Heath last weekend, won 17-0 at Shay Lane in late September.

However, Salem have scored 143 points in their last five matches, including a 44-13 thumping of visitors Selby six days ago.

"It will be a very difficult game but confidence is high," said Salem's chairman Neil Klenk.

"With Christian Georgiou as player-coach, Brods are the best defensive team that we have met this season, but the mood in the dressing room is good and we think that we can cause an upset."

Prop To'i Auali'tia may have to wait another week to come off the injury list for Salem, but they are hopeful of having Glenn Morrison (twisted knee) and Morgan Mirzaali available.

Incidentally, admission prices at Denholme Gate Road have been increased from £4 to £5 in 2020 (it has been the same for seven years) and the £3 concessionary price has been ditched.

Keighley, who at 11th are two places below Salem, also have a tricky test at sixth-placed West Leeds, but the hosts have lost their last two.

Cleckheaton are enjoying having a nose bleed from their lofty perch of second in North One East.

The Moorenders, who have had a nap hand of wins, have respectable visitors in fifth-placed Moortown, but have triumphed in seven of their eight home matches this campaign.

Cleckheaton are missing Brad Marsden and Joey Carley, however, but expect to have Tom Austin to bolster the back row.

Bradford & Bingley, who are eighth, must fancy their chances of a home win over next-to-bottom West Hartlepool.

But the Bees are now without their Tongans and are also missing Ali Macdonald, Lance Taylor and Sam Murphy.

Bradford & Bingley coach Hugh Gumbs said of their 27-17 setback at Moortown: "It was a very tough result but I cannot believe that we lost after making such a good start.

"We lost concentration, made errors and gave away some soft tries. We will also have to reshuffle our players, playing some of them out of position, and we haven't been able to train at Wagon Lane as the river has been so high and there has been standing water on the pitches."

Old Grovians, who have lost three of their last four, need to put together a strong second half of the season to achieve their ambition of a top-four place in Yorkshire Division Two.

Grovians, who are fifth, host ninth-placed Thornensians, who have been beaten on their last four away days.
