THE top two in the Hexham and District Sunday League are gearing up for Sunday's potential title decider.
For a lot rides on the outcome of the clash between second placed Wylam and current leaders, and reigning champions, Haltwhistle Conservatives.
Halty have hit a purple patch in recent weeks with 25 goals in their past three outings, while Wylam have lost two on the bounce which includes going out of the Division One KO Cup at the semi-finals stage.
But with just two points separating them, Sunday's encounter is expected to be a close fought affair as they have proved consistent throughout the campaign.
At the other end, Rose and Crown Bellingham's late bid to beat the drop sees them host a Hexham Phoenix side who have moved away from danger with an upturn in results lately.
Allendale and Barrasford are both not yet out of the woods and will battle it out for the opportunity to create some breathing space.
Having got their hands on the Division Two trophy at the weekend, Prudhoe Social Club will be hoping to do the double over Bardon Mill. But first, they have to get past Dr Syntax Prudhoe in the semi-finals of the divisional cup for the chance to meet their rivals.
Mill visit neighhvours Haydon Bridge Anchor in the Mick Simmons Trophy, while the rivalry between Prudhoe Town and Stocksfield will recommence this weekend too.
Division One's Ryton and Crawcrook Albion host Division Two side Phoenix Chopwell, while Acomb Welfare welcome Hexham Hearts.
