MORLEY may have won eight of their nine home games this season in North One East but second-placed Cleckheaton travel there with confidence tomorrow.

The visitors have seen off leaders York and third-placed Driffield in recent weeks at Moorend, with Driffield falling 23-17 only last Saturday.

Cleckheaton showed a potent mix of stern defence and, although they weren't at their most clinical, decent attacks, and head coach Thiu Barnard said of the trip to the fifth-placed hosts: "If we play like we did last Saturday we should be all right."

However, Cleck will be without flanker Joey Carley due to an ankle injury sustained early doors against Driffield, while skipper Matty Piper faces a late fitness test on both a 'dead leg' and a tender knee.

Bradford & Bingley needed their bonus-point victory over Morley last weekend at Keighley to keep the relegation places at arm's length.

A match at 11th-placed Pocklington, who have only won eight matches this season, might not seem the worst follow-up for the eighth-placed Bees.

But they should be wary as Pock have won six out of 10 at Percy Road, including defeating Morley, Cleckheaton and Driffield.

Bradford Salem won't like statistics being quoted at them before hosting Hullensians in Yorkshire Division One.

The visitors, who are rock bottom and doomed to the drop, have lost all 10 of their away matches so far this campaign, conceding a total of 437 points.

Complacency is therefore the worst enemy for eighth-placed Salem, who are missing Glenn Morrison due to a commitment with Bradford Grammar School, but have hooker Ed Cook, flanker Nick Fontaine, centre Sam Dunn and winger Martins Bokiss back in contention.

Nothing short of a win, and ideally a five-point win, is what the doctor orders for Keighley at home to Pontefract.

The hosts, who have a game in hand on their visitors, are in the higher of the two relegation berths on 32 points, while Ponte are a place above them on 38.

Yorkshire Division Two side Old Grovians, like Baildon in the division below them, are at the leaders, in this case Roundhegians.

The Leeds club have only lost to Wensleydale and Old Rishworthians at Chelwood Drive this term, winning the other seven, but seventh-placed Grovians have a representative team.

Their coach, Andy Hinchliffe, said: "We are missing all our Woodhouse Grove school players as they have a match and have the odd unavailability in addition, but we can field a decent side.

"Once again we have eight props available so we will be quite a big side with quite a few older heads."

Second-placed Baildon are at Leeds Corinthians in a top-of-the-table clash in Yorkshire Division Three.

Corinthians, who are nine points clear having played a game more, lost 29-27 at Castleford last weekend, but have won nine out of nine at Middleton in 2019-20.

Baildon have won their last six matches, scoring 247 points, and haven't tasted defeat since a 21-13 reverse at Knottingley in December.

Wibsey, who are at Hemsworth, must be wondering how they will fit all their games in.

The Villagers, who haven't played since February 8, have only managed 16 matches so far in Yorkshire Three.

Skipton, meanwhile, have played 20, five clubs have played 19 and a further four 18.

But there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

Wibsey can play tomorrow's match at Hemsworth (who beat visitors Baildon 19-5 in October) as a double header - it will also count as a Yorkshire Vase second-round tie - and there will be league double headers at Ossett on April 4 and Knottingley on April 11 (Easter Saturday).

The Villagers hope to wrap their season up on April 25 at Harrogate Pythons, thus avoiding (Yorkshire Vase permitting) any matches in May.
