After the wash out of round 14, better conditions are forecast for round 15 of the NCB Premier

League season tomorrow

At Langwith Road, leaders Cuckney will host a Kimberley Institute side that have found themselves

locked into eighth place in recent weeks.

The Bears will have revenge in mind, Kimberley taking the spoils when these sides last met.

Plumtree sit second in the table and find themselves on the road this week.

The NCB Academy will welcome the Plums, having been on an improved run of form which sees them hovering on the edge of the top six.

Clifton Village lie third and will be eyeing up a chance to tighten the top end if the table with a win over Welbeck Colliery.

The Colliers have been on a downward curve in recent weeks, and with their hosts resurgent will be expecting a tough outing.

Rolls Royce Leisure begin the day in fourth as they await the visit of Radcliffe-on-Trent.

The Trentmen sit on the fringes of the relegation zone, knowing that chances for points are becoming fewer.

Similarly, for Rolls, points are at a premium given how tight the top six are at the moment.

Caythorpe in fifth go on the road to another of the relegation battlers, Ordsall Bridon.

Bridon will be looking to make home advantage pay against a side who, whilst they haven’t lost in 11 matches, have not been at their best on their travels.

Finally, Mansfield Hosiery Mills, still bottom but now within striking distance of the teams directly

above them, put their improved form to the test at Birchover Park.

Home side, West IndianCavaliers are not accustomed to the depths of sixth place in the table and will want to make an upward move.

All games are scheduled to commence at 12.30pm.

Sunday sees T20 Finals Day take place at Radcliffe-on-Trent. First up, starting at 10.45am, Cuckney go up against the West Indian Cavaliers in the first semi-final.

Following that, Plumtree will take on the South Notts champions, Notts Unity Casuals, who earned their place after a play-off with the Bassetlaw champions.

That match scheduled to start at 2pm. The final will start around 5pm with the two winning sides facing off.
