INDOOR CRIKET

Medite Ipswich take to the road on Saturday to face reigning National League champions Stumps of Aston Villa.

Stumps will be very tough opposition for an in-form Medite side who have now won four of their last five games.

Medite Ipswich manager Brian Barnard admits his squad have been looking forward to this test.

"We have been waiting for this fixture to put the British Open final behind us and show Stumps that they will need to be in good form to win," he said.

Meanwhile, the Ipswich B team will be looking to preserve their 100 per cent record.
