The Nottinghamshire Premier League reaches the halfway stage this weekend, and what a weekend it promises to be.

Leaders Cuckney, unbeaten at home, take on second placed Plumtree at Langwith Road.

The visitors are unbeaten since the opening weekend and sit 20 points behind the Bears after the setback of a losing draw last week.

Clifton Village sit third in the table, despite a run that sees them having failed to win since round four, and will be looking to take advantage of whoever slips up above them when they visit Lady Bay.

The NCB Academy team have only one win so far, but significantly haven’t lost at home as yet.

West Indian Cavaliers, in fourth, travel to fifth placed Caythorpe with the sides separated by a point, and both within six points of Clifton.

The hosts are undefeated at Caythorpe Road and come to this match on the back of possibly their best performance of the season, while the Cavs, yet to feature in a drawn game, picked up a solid win over the Academy.

Welbeck Colliery sit sixth in the table, and travel to Radcliffe-on-Trent aiming to continue their solid away form. The Colliers have yet to lose as the visiting team. Radcliffe have yet to taste outright victory, but have been picking up points of late and a good result here could lift them out of the relegation zone.

Rolls Royce Leisure have found life a struggle in recent weeks. Like Clifton they haven’t won since round four but, unlike Clifton, they haven’t been picking up draw points.

As a result, Rolls have slid into the bottom half of the table. They visit an Ordsall Bridon outfit who have avoided defeat in their last two matches and will be keen to continue their push away from the relegation places.

The league’s other winless side, Mansfield Hosiery Mills, go on the road to 2bm Ground to visit Kimberley Institute.

The Millers have dropped 44 points adrift of Radcliffe, so need to start picking up points.

The Institute have just one win in their last six matches and could find themselves in danger of being sucked into the dogfight at the bottom if results go against them.

All games are scheduled to start at 12.30pm.
