Hucknall welcome Farnsfield to the New Gatehouse Ground as the Owzat Cricket Nottinghamshire Premier League reaches its half-way point this weekend.

Hucknall dropped into 10th place following their draw at Plumtree, but they did avoid a third straight defeat and have a 19-point cushion over Attenborough who sit below them. A return to winning ways here and they’ll move above their opponents.

Richard Greatorex has the opportunity to reach 500 NPL runs at home if he can score 19 or more.

Farnsfield sit in eighth spot after they beat Mansfield Hosiery Mills last time out, a result which secured back to back wins and means that they are now unbeaten in their last four matches. A win here could see them move up one place, but perhaps more importantly increase the distance between them and the relegation zone.

If he’s on duty Paul Franks needs 43 for 2,500 NPL runs.
