TOP takes on bottom in Dorset League Division Two tomorrow as leaders Portland Red Triangle travel to Weymouth Seconds (1.30pm).

The sides may be at opposite ends of the table but their positions in the standings are somewhat misleading.

Hosts Weymouth are yet to play any cricket this season after their first fixture at Bournemouth Thirds last weekend was called off.

Meanwhile, Portland are one of only two teams to have completed two matches, and the second of those against Cerne Valley last Saturday ended in defeat.

After Matt Randell (66) and Chris Leake (51) had helped Triangle to 200-7, Cerne won the game in the final over with two wickets to spare following a fine knock of 89 by Neil Kellaway.

Portland skipper Scott Males said: “It was disappointing not to win but I am confid- ent that with a few improvements we will bounce back against local rivals Wey-mouth.”

In Division Four, Portland Seconds, a point behind leaders Sturminster & Hinton, entertain Swanage Seconds at Reforne.

Captain Grant Neven is hopeful that his charges can produce another good all-round effort against strong opposition.

“We are full of confidence and champing at the bit to get out there and give it our all,” he said. “We will not underestimate our opposition and know that we have to be at our best to gain victory.”
