RUNAWAY leaders Haughley United and Grundisburgh both have home games they will expect to win in the Senior Division of the Metaltec SIL tomorrow.

Haughley take on neighbours Stowupland Falcons while Grundisburgh also have a local derby - with Westerfield the visitors.

While these two fight it out for the title, a battle is building to try to avoid the drop down to junior football.

Two clubs will definitely go down to Division One, regardless of whether Haughley and Brantham have their applications to move up to the Ridgeons League accepted.

What it will mean is extra clubs gaining promotion from the First Division if vacancies occur in the top flight.
