The maths are simple. Nothing less than a win this weekend, and the team face relegation. A win (assuming Lymm do not do the same at Sandal – and only Wirral outside the top four have achieved that) and they take it into the final weekend.

A game against the bottom placed team, who have just two wins all season, would look a good place, but in their last home game a month ago Wilmslow score 44 points against Wirral.

Since then they have suffered big losses on the road against Blaydon (our last opponents) and Ilkely (our final opponents), and their only other league points since the start of November came in a draw against Vale of Lune. They have two wins to our seven, but match our one losing bonus point and four try scoring bonus points, and pushed us all the way at home. Only Vale and Lymm have not got a try scoring bonus point against them – so they will be keen to add us to that list.

However if the team can repeat the efforts of the last two weeks, they should do it, but it was Grand National weekend last year, when we went to relegated Birkenhead Park, and only started playing when it was too late.

TEAM : The good news is all the injuries from last week seem to now be OK, as the only change sees a debut for Development team multi try scorer Chris Wakeford on the wing, with Dan Wilson moving to the bench, in place of Ben Dixon.

WEATHER : Cloudy but should be dry.
