CORBRIDGE require a convincing victory on the final day against Tyne Valley rivals Stocksfield to survive the drop from the Northumberland Cricket League.
In what is sure to add extra spice to the feisty derby, the bottom club need to pull something remarkable out of the bag to overcome their neighbours.
Their fight to beat the drop was not helped when they went down by seven wickets to runaway champions Alnmouth and Lesbury in their penultimate match at the weekend.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
