There's no prizes for naming Cumbria Cricket League’s Match of the Day tomorrow.

Edenside stages the clash between title hopefuls Carlisle (second in the table) and reigning champions Cockermouth (who are third).

Because of Cockermouth’s slow start to the season - they lost to Carlisle in the opening fixture at Sandair - they trail the city side by 18 points.

Carlisle, in turn, are six points behind leaders Furness which leaves Cockermouth a fair bit of catching up to do.

Marc Brown, the Carlisle skipper, said: “It really is a massive game for both sides but we are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment, still unbeaten in the league.

“In our last five games, we have bowled out the opposition for less than 100.

“It has meant our batsmen haven’t had much time in the middle, so it was good to see against Millom on Saturday that our No.5, No.6 and No.7 got a decent bat and made runs.

“Millom actually were a dangerous side who bowled and fielded well so we were quite pleased to get to 184.

“They were 50-1 at one point and looked threatening, but they lost wickets at regular intervals after that and we got through to a comfortable win in the end.

“But we know what to expect because we go down to Millom in a fortnight and are expecting a tough contest.”

First things first, though, and that’s Cockermouth tomorrow afternoon when they make two changes from the side which beat Millom.

Alex Raybould, unavailable last week, comes in for Jordan Whinn while young Stan Mcalindon, who had a hamstring problem last weekend, is back to replace Phil Frazer.

Cockermouth make only one change from the side which beat Wigton by seven wickets. Wicket-keeper Sam Scully is back from holiday.

Ben Davidson (37) and James Dawson (34 not out) were Carlisle’s main scorers in their 184 all out against Millom.

Fraser Conn continued his good run of form by taking 4-30 when Millom were bowled out for 99.

Wigton were indebted to two significant partnerships for reaching 151 at Cockermouth.

They were in deep trouble at 35-5 when Scott Mulholland (24) and John Reed (36) put on 48 for the sixth wicket.

They subsided again to 94-9 but an entertaining last-wicket partnership between Tony Ward (34 not out) and Craig Stevens (21) enabled them to set a more challenging total.

Cockermouth were given the best possible start by skipper Alex Grainger (58) and Matthew Sempill (58) as they put on 117 for the first wicket. They eventually reached their target in 35.1 overs.

Wigton travel to Whitehaven tomorrow - third bottom against next-to-bottom.

Keswick have made good progress up the table and are now fifth but players’ availability could be a problem which prevents them going even higher.

Will Atkinson, Charlie Robson, Ruairidh Barker and Steve Moss are all missing for a variety of reasons when they travel to Millom tomorrow.

Last week, Keswick travelled to Dalton without in-form batsman Atkinson and wicket keeper / batsman Moss, the latter’s availability now seriously restricted due to work commitments.

Asked to bat first, professional Geeth Kumara (32), Glen Weightman (top-scoring on 46), Scott McGown (38) and James McGown (25) all made useful contributions as Keswick mustered 205-7 from their 50 overs.

Dalton did not offer a great deal in reply and were dismissed for a modest 137 in 43 overs with Scott McGown ripping out numbers four to seven for 4-11.

A final note on that Match of the Day at Edenside - it isn’t the only thing going on.

There’s an All Stars event at 9am, a club barbecue which starts at 4.30pm and, after the game, soul Motown entertainer Scotty D will be providing the clubhouse entertainment from 8pm.
