The title may already have been claimed by Lower Hopton but they will be looking to make it an unbeaten long season with two matches left to play and their biggest challenge before them this Wednesday. Second-in-the-table Kirkheaton Cons need the points to keep up their own challenge for the runners-up spot and they will be fired up to do that and also claim the bragging rights of being the first team to beat the Champions.
The New Millers will have a special interest in the outcome of that top two tussle as they look to take advantage of any opportunity presented to them and being just a point behind Kirkheaton Cons and both having played the same number of matches. They take on a Milnsbridge 'A' team desperate for points to avert the growing threat of relegation and failing to win any of their last four matches. Whereas the New Millers are the form team of 2022 winning all their four matches since the turn of the year.
It is still mathematically possible for Lindley BC 'A' to pinch second place but will need big wins from their two remaining games although they are both against teams lower down the table than them. First up are Thorpe Green 'A' this week who will come into the match in buoyant mood after a whitewash win over Rastrick 'A' last week. It has been a long season for Rastrick and they will have no regrets that the season is drawing to a close and they can drop a level and regroup for next season. They play Clayton West who are comfortably in mid-table and who will complete their season against the Rastrick side this Monday.
