North London captain Sam Bardon says his side are feeling more confident after picking up a point in Saturday’s game against Acton.
They take on Harrow this Saturday, who sit three places and seven points above them in the Middlesex County Cricket League Division Three.
Acton reached 199-8 before declaring after 44 overs on Saturday, with Bardon's side then reaching 96-5 in 35 overs which was enough to get them a point.
Orban Holdgate's 24 helped his side get the point, while James Battcock also picked up four wickets for North London.
Bardon said: "We should be confident of getting a result against Harrow if we contain a couple of their explosive batsmen, in particular Ronald Etienne.
