DIVISION Three’s top two sides are set to lock horns this weekend.

Table-topping Westcliff will welcome Leigh to Chalkwell Park for an eye-catching local derby tomorrow.

And Westcliff captain Peter Barnes is relishing the challenge of going head-to-head with second-placed Leigh.

“We are looking forward to tomorrow’s game and we’re hoping to continue the form we have shown so far,” said Barnes.

“Both sides have got off to a good start this season.

“We have always got on well with our neighbours over the years but we will be trying our hardest to win this weekend.”

Both sides go into the encounter having recorded three victories from their opening four outings of the season.

But Westcliff have the upper-hand and are 10 points clear of their local rivals at the Division Three summit.

Unlike Leigh, Westcliff are yet to suffer a defeat.

Barnes’ side have registered back-to-back triumphs, with their most recent being a convincing 135-run win over Walthamstow last weekend.

The only blemish on Westcliff’s record so far has come in the form of a draw at Goresbrook.

Leigh have also recorded two consecutive wins ahead of their short journey to Chalkwell Park.

Having suffered relegation from Division Two last season, Leigh have acclimatised to life in Division Three seemlessly.

And Leigh, who are captained by Joe Sexton, defeated West Essex by six wickets last time out.

Elsewhere, Stanford-le-Hope will be looking to rediscover their impressive early season form when they do battle with Walthamstow tomorrow.

Stanford-le-Hope relinquished top spot in the standings as they were condemned to a second loss in succession last weekend.

And Stanford-le-Hope, who were beaten by Epping last time out, are now in fourth place.
