Joel Hughes will hope his young side can rediscover that winning feeling on Saturday
North Middlesex's winless run extended to six games at the weekend after losing at home to Twickenham in the Middlesex County Premier Division.
The Park Road club were all out for 122, 101 runs short of their victory target, to suffer a second consecutive defeat.
Joel Hughes' team are still second and only two points off leaders Ealing, who have hit the skids of late too.
It dates back to the hard-fought draw between the two rivals on July 13, but North Middlesex's latest winless fixture will cause some frustration.
You may also want to watch:
Twickenham were bowled out for 222 in the 59th over with Liam O'Driscoll (2-30), Max Harris (2-33), Alex MacQueen (2-43) and Luke Hollman (2-47) all claiming two wickets apiece.
Chasing a getable total of 223, North Middlesex just couldn't recover from losing Hollman (39) and Evan Flowers (26) in the middle overs of their innings.
