Swardeston will be gunning for revenge tomorrow as they look to seize an advantage in the title battle.

Mark Thomas' side host Horsford, who handed Swardeston their first defeat of the season at the start of June.

Then, Horsford were at the bottom of the table, but their extraordinary home form - all five of their wins have come at Manor Park - has seen them steer clear of trouble.

Swardeston, meanwhile, have maintained their place at the top, despite losing two of their last three games. They now stand 11 points clear of form side Godmanchester, who they lost to last Saturday.

Godmanchester, with six wins from their last eight games, head for Great Witchingham, who currently lie fifth. Godmanchester's last league defeat was at home to Witchingham in early June, when the hosts needed just eight to win with four wickets remaining, but collapsed to lose by two runs.

Mallards should not yet be discounted from contention for their fifth EAPL title, as they lie fourth, 38 points behind Swardeston with four games left to play.

Tomorrow, they travel to Fakenham, who themselves are desperate for points after results went against them last weekend. Michael Smith's side had lifted themselves off the bottom of the table, but their defeat to Cambridge Granta last Saturday, coupled with Clacton's surprise win against Bury, sent them spinning back to the basement.

They will be taking an interest in tomorrow's game at Postwick, where Norwich play host to Fakenham's nearest rivals, Clacton.

Elsewhere, Granta are at home to Bury.
