The picture at the bottom of Premier British League will be far clearer as two crucial fixtures take place this weekend.
Cardiff City, North Ayrshire and Fusion are all fighting for their Premier Division status with just two rounds to go and face pivotal matches over the weekend.
Fusion host North Ayrshire knowing that a defeat would almost certainly leave them facing a drop from the top flight. They are currently bottom of the league, two points adrift of the Scots.
Victory would see them leapfrog North Ayrshire, who picked up a big 7-1 victory over BATTS in the last round, their first win in five outings.
Fusion can, however, take hope from the fact their only league win so far came against their next opponents, with Lorestas Trumpauskas and Emran Hussain both taking two sets in a 6-2 win.
Cardiff aren’t out of the woods yet either, although a win at BATTS would see them take a huge stride towards consolidating their place in the league.
Harlow-based BATTS are all but safe, although avoiding defeat would certainly secure their place in the league next year.
The hosts thrashed Cardiff 8-0 in Wales earlier in the season, although it remains to be seen whether the likes of Malte Moregard will make the trip over for this contest.
In Premier Division ‘A’, Ormeau host Drumchapel looking to pick up a fifth win of their maiden campaign in the division.
Defending champions Drumchapel have seen their hopes of retaining the title all but evaporate, with only the most extraordinary sequence of results securing them the title.
But three victories in the next three weekends would give them the faintest of hope, and they are expected to field a strong side as they look to exert pressure on Ormesby and Urban TTC.
