The three sides battling relegation all have difficult fixtures this weekend in the Hevey Building Supplies NCL Premier Division.

As things stand, Horton House are bottom of the pile with 105 points from their 15 matches, Wollaston are six ahead on 111 and Burton Latimer a further six above them on 117.

On Saturday, Horton entertain second-place Northampton Saints, Wollaston are at home to Finedon Dolben and Burton Latimer welcome the Old Northamptonians.

All three strugglers have to face each other before the season is out and it looks as though the battle to avoid the drop could go to the final weekend when Horton host Burton at Denton Road.

At the other end of the table, Peterborough, who have a 33-point advantage over the Saints, travel to Stony Stratford.

Brixworth will aim to put the disappointment of losing in the Hevey NCL Twenty Cup final behind them when they play host to Wellingborough Town and the NCCC Academy travel to Rushton.

In Division One, the tie of the day comes at Oundle where Rushden are the visitors in a repeat of the cup semi-final clash of last Sunday.
