League giants Drumchapel and Ormesby will come face to face this weekend for what promises to be a pivotal clash in the battle for the British League title.

Ormesby travelling to Glasgow for the tie and making the journey north will be Danny Reed and Darius Knight, Filip Szymanski and Swede Viktor Brodd.

The English club are more in need of a victory as Drumchapel currently lead the table with 13 points, one ahead of their rivals, meaning a home victory or draw will all but hand the title to Drumchapel, barring any major future upsets.

Stepping up for Drumchapel are Liu Song, Eugine Wang and unbeaten He Zi When for what is likely to be a tense day of action.

The match will be streamed live on the Drumchapel Facebook page from 3pm – click here to watch.

Away from the titanic clash at the top, the mid-table battle also continues this weekend with BATTS, Cardiff City and Fusion all in contention for third place.

Halton return to the league after a fixture out and are still trying to gain their first point, and the club currently sitting in third place, BATTS, will be their opponents.

Playing for Halton this weekend will be Richard Lightowler, Kin Fung Chan, Tomasz Rzeszotko and Jake Shaw, who has made a comeback this year with some impressive performances.

BATTS should be confident going into this match but will be taking nothing for granted as Fusion and Cardiff are biting at their heels to overtake them on the table. Playing this weekend will be Adam Nutland, Jack Bennett, Steve Beerling and Peter Cleminson.

After the last round’s disappointing result against Cardiff City, which they lost 5-3, North Ayrshire will be determined to secure the crucial two points against Fusion to re-establish their position in the league.

Playing for North Ayrshire will be Sean Doherty, Colin Dalglish, Richie Main and Chris Main, all of whom have been regular faces playing for the club this season.

Fusion are just one point behind BATTS with one extra loss on their scoresheet so the victors will be in pole position to challenge BATTS in the table.

Fusion have had a good season so far sticking in the middle of the table but with the points tightening up around them they will be doing everything they can to remain in a strong position.

The match has been moved to on Sunday February 26, rather than this Saturday.

Drumchapel v Ormesby: Saturday February 25 (3pm)

BATTS v Halton: Saturday February 25 (2pm)
