Cricket: Trio battle to avoid the drop
NERVES and tension will be at fever pitch at Barnfields tomorrow as Moddershall entertain Leycett in their relegation clash.
And Norton are also at risk of being the team that joins Betley slipping out of the division and into the third tier.
The trio are separated by just three points heading into the last match of the campaign, with most of the attention focused on Khalid Malik's Moddershall and Tas Hussain's Leycett.
Visitors Leycett are in the unwanted second relegation position, but are just two points shy of the Modd men.

Norton, though, who are a point better off than Moddershall, could have the toughest task on their hands.
They entertain champions Elworth potentially needing at least a winning draw to confirm their safety.
Norton slipped to defeat against Meir Heath last weekend, and their batsmen will need to be on top form to negate the threat posed by Yasir Ali, Steve Morgan and Co.
Whitmore are favourites to book their place in the Premier Division with Elworth as they boast a 19-point lead over Sandyford.
Whitmore head to Barlaston, in eighth, looking to complete their mission after being pushed close by relegated Betley last weekend.
Sandyford won't give up the ghost and will be targeting maximum points to crank up the pressure on the final day.
Jonathan Barnett's men are also on the road, visiting Blythe, who have climbed up to seventh in recent weeks to put paid to any relegation fears.
Betley, who have won just once all season, play their final match at this level at home to Meir Heath.
They almost pulled off a shock by seeing off Whitmore last weekend, but their batting let them down as they chased just 97 to win.
Fifth-placed Silverdale have enjoyed a solid first season in the division after winning promotion, and they wind up their campaign by welcoming Meakins to Underwood Road.
