The Tivoli Road outfit edged closer to second-placed Brentham last weekend

Hornsey will look to close the gap some more on promotion rivals Brentham on Saturday in Middlesex League Division Two.

Garfield Struthers' side will host relegation-threatened Enfield desperate for a win, which would keep alive the club's outside chance of winning promotion.

The brilliant mid-season form of the Tivoli Road outfit has propelled them into the battle for a top-two finish and last weekend's draw away to Eastcote helped.

It was far from easy for the visitors, though, and although they were only 18 runs short of a victory come the conclusion, they did have a single wicket in hand.

Bhasker Patel's 4-60 saw hosts Eastcote dismissed for 237 at the end of the 53rd over with Jack Bruce contributing with 2-53.

Hornsey's chase was led by Joseph Emanuel and he hit a brilliant 91-ball 97, but when he was caught three short of a deserved century, the away side had to bat out their overs for a winning draw.
