Bulkington aiming to avenge Folly Lane Telegraph Cup K0; SOCCER.

Bulkington Sports have a quick opportunity to wreak revenge on Folly Lane for last Saturday's Evening Telegraph Challenge Cup quarter-final defeat when the sides meet in the Coventry Alliance tomorrow.

Again the villagers will have home advantage and manager Dave Formaston knows his men cannot afford any slip-ups if they are to stay in the Premier Division championship race.

Although lying second behind leaders Stockingford AA, Sports have a one point deficit and have played two games more than the Cabbage so nothing less than a win over Lane will keep their title ambitions alive.

The same applies to Dougie Walton's boys, who snatched a last-minute equaliser against Bulkington last weekend in the cup and then booked their semi-final place with an extra-time winner, despite them lying fifth in the table.

For the first time for many weeks a full league programme takes place with unbeaten Stockingford facing a tough examination at unpredictable Witherley United as they strive to strengthen their lead at the top.

Arch rivals Nuneaton Griff look to have a simpler task at home to lowly Woodlands but manager Mark Green will be taking no chances as the Bedworth side are more than capable of pulling off a shock or two should the hosts show complacency.

Bermuda WMC hope to be back in action and if they are to steer clear of a relegation battle then Pete Spacey's outfit they must gain some points and a win over fellow strugglers Triumph Athletic would be a real boost.

Jet Blades look to have blown their title hopes but manager Bernie Cope has his sights set on a top three spot at least and those aims can be enhanced tomorrow by overcoming mid-table Highway Sports at the Ponderosa.

In the remaining fixture, bottom-of-the-table Dunlop will be searching for their first win of the season in the league when they entertain Christ the King.
