BECTIVE have a big job ahead of them if they are to stay with the premiers at the top of the table after Old Boys amassed a huge total of 367?? in the first innings of the clash last week.
Meanwhile North Tamworth are also facing a big chase at Riverside 1 after South Tamworth plundered 188 last week, while across the road West Tamworth are only 12 runs short of first innings points after they bowled City United out for 107 before knocking out 2-95 before stumps.
A win could see the resurgent West Tamworth side sneak ahead of Bective into second place if the Bulls can’t at least bat out the day, although Bulls skipper Adam Jones is targeting a victory for his young side.
The Bulls scored 364 at No 1 Oval the previous game, with the skipper knocking an unbeaten 171, and he is hoping that either himself or another top order bat can do it again.
“We always target the win,” Jones said. “The wicket is good and the outfield is quick so I will back our list to do it if we apply ourselves.”
