PREVIEW MIDLANDS 2 - ROUND 21

By Matt Derbyshire

Pete holding the lead but absurd predictions could see Matt pull even!

Dronfield look primed for second place but Long Eaton are still in the mix. Melbourne welcome local rivals Ashby to Cockshut Lane. Melbourne have won the league but are looking to finish the campaign with a flourish rather than a whimper. No predictions as usual.

Matt has got in first with the hope of pulling a few points back!

Long Eaton v Southwell
Matt sees Long Eaton at home as too strong for Southwell but a loss last week has given Peter faith the second bottom side and pips Southwell to beat Long Eaton, replicating their earlier victory.

Loughborough v Lincoln

Matt once agains see Loughborough as the form side and a close game that home advantage will count. Loughborough to win. Pete on the other hands knows that Lincoln like a bus trip and sees them as taking the points in this game.

Matlock v Dronfield
Home advantage for Pete here despite Dronfield class form the second half of this season. Matt backs the second placed team and a win for Dronfield that would see them cement second place.

Newark v Ashbourne
Matt was very impressed with Ashbourne last week and a good balance of physical forwards and skilful backs will see them win away on the road but Pete picks Newark.

Rasen v Ilkeston
Tough one to pick. Matt backing the home side and Pete the Ilks.

With every game a different prediction it could be a bingo bonanza this week with points up for grabs....
