Betfred League 1 Preview

There's three crucial fixtures to look forward to in Betfred League 1 this weekend, as the season rolls along towards to the play-offs.

The weekend starts at the New River Stadium in the Capital, as London Skolars host the West Wales Raiders on Saturday afternoon, in a clash between the bottom two in the table.

Skolars were involved in a pulsating draw with Doncaster last week in their Friday Night Lights clash ahead of the Betfred Challenge Cup weekend, bringing an end to their five game losing streak, dating back to the end of May.

They face the bottom club - West Wales - who have lost all 13 of their league fixtures so far this season, and will hope to break their duck this weekend.

Sunday sees two further games, with top club Barrow hosting Coventry Bears at Craven Park.

The Raiders continue to set the pace in Betfred League 1, but will be keen to bounce back after suffering their first league defeat of the campaign last time out at Keighley.

They take on the Coventry Bears, who sit third bottom of the table, but with a tally of eight point, have a safe buffer from the bottom of the table.

Elsewhere, Yorkshire outfits Hunslet and Keighley face off at the South Leeds Stadium, with just one point seperating the two sides in the table.

Keighley sit fourth on 10 points - level with Rochdale and North Wales - with Hunslet just behind in seventh.

Sunday's clash could go along way to deciding who will finish in the top six at the end of the regular season - and with it, clinching a play-off spot.
