Crunch tie coming up next
The Home League has developed into a two horse race over the last few weeks and after seven rounds of matches, Keith Holgate is sitting two points clear of Wayne Martin, who has a game in hand.
Next up though comes a crucial match between the two leaders which will be played at Wayne’s house. Wayne won the reverse fixture 3-0 and so he will head into the tie a strong favourite, however Keith is currently in a good run of form. It will certainly be a fascinating match and if Keith can emerge victorious, he will be hard to catch.
