There are two big title clashes and one survival showdown involving local clubs tomorrow.

Leaders St Ives face a top-of-the-table fixture in Midlands Division Three when they welcome Leicester side Vipers to Somersham Road.

The Bulls go into battle 10 points clear of the visitors and keen to bounce back to winning ways after suffering a first defeat of the season – 6-5 at Bedford outfit Queens – in their previous game three weeks ago.

And St Neots can take a big step towards a second Midlands Division Four East crown in the space of four years tomorrow.

Saints, who sit eight points clear at the summit with only four games to go, entertain Bedford Swifts at The Common.
