Roffey could grasp control of the Sussex League Premier Division title race with two victories this weekend.

The reigning champions host local rivals Horsham on Saturday, before playing their game in hand against the Sussex Development XI on Sunday in what could be a make-or-break weekend.

Two maximum-point victories could see them jump up from second to overtake East Grinstead, no matter of the current leader’s result at Eastbourne.

Josh Fleming’s side will be hoping to avenge the defeat to Horsham earlier in the season and then avoid having the Sussex side pick up their first win of the year a day later.

Positive results will see Roffey in the driving seat and in charge of the title race with their fate back in their own hands with two more games to play.

They would face midtable Billingshurst and bottom side Middleton in the run-in as they attempt to be crowned champions for the second successive season.
