Rugby: Stafford look to keep up the pace
STAFFORD will look to keep pace with the leading duo in Midlands Two West North when they host Tamworth on Saturday.
Third-placed Stafford ensured the pace-setters wouldn't be disappearing over the horizon after beating joint-leaders Wolverhampton 33-28 last time out.
That kept the gap to six points.
LEEK are a point behind in fourth, following their 60-0 demolition of rock-bottom Lordswood Dixonians last Saturday.

The Moorlanders hit the road to play Veseyans, who have ensured a turbulent start to the campaign.
One win and four defeats has left them second-bottom.
NEWCASTLE suffered a disappointing 16-14 defeat at Willenhall last weekend.
They were 14-3 ahead at one stage, but couldn't repel a second-half home comeback as they lost their unbeaten record.
It saw them drop to third place ahead of their home encounter with Shrewsbury.
ECCLESHALL have the dubious honour of travelling to face the side in pole position, although they hit the road having chalked up a first win of the league season with a 9-8 verdict over Handsworth last Saturday.
CREWE & NANTWICH turned on the style in South Lancs/Cheshire Three last weekend to rout Orrell 52-5.
The Cheshire side return to home comforts this weekend when they entertain Ruskin Park, who are mid-table.
LINLEY & KIDSGROVE have rung the changes in their search for a first South Lancs/Cheshire Three victory of the season.
Paul Edgington and John Brookes come into the front row, and Mick Cunningham is selected in the second row for the home clash with Helsby.
In a restructured three-quarter line, Kevin White returns at centre and Rob Gidman is on the wing.
Linley are currently bottom after losing all seven matches.
CONGLETON will have their work cut out when they make the trip to face leaders Manchester Medics, who have an unblemished record from seven games.
TRENTHAM, in second, make the trip to play Port Sunlight.
