HIMLEY will take their fight for promotion to the final game of the season after another battling success over Attock.

Skipper Greg Wright's vital unbeaten 91 helped his side to 196-6 from their 33 overs last Saturday.

Thomas Rhodes (3-24) and Chris Boroughs (2-29) then bagged key wickets to restrict the home side's reply to 136.

It leaves Himley firmly in the hunt for a top-two finish in Division One of the Birmingham and District League after second-placed Moseley saw their clash at Bromsgrove abandoned due to rain.

Just six points now separate the promotion rivals heading into the last weekend of the 2017 campaign.

Himley will take on Wellington at home this Saturday (noon start) while Moseley go to bottom side Walmley with their fate in their own hands.

Wright says his side will be fully focused on getting their job done before turning attention to how things unfold at Walmley "Our hopes have been hanging by a thread for a few weeks now but we've kept trying to win every game and keeping ourselves in with a chance," said Wright "Three out of the last four have gone to the wire and we've battled away and come through some really tough tests to make sure we're still in it at the end.

"Over the last couple of years I think we have been a bit of a light touch as a side but you can't say that now.

"We've battled and got home in some really tight finishes and last Saturday was no different.

"Overall I think we've over achieved this year and there really is no pressure on us to go up just yet.

"We'll be fully focused on ourselves and if results do go our way then it'll be a massive bonus for us.

"The bigger picture is that we're a young side that has really progressed this season. We're desperate to win our game and go up but we'll just worry about what we can control and remain optimistic."

Himley were without Sri Lankan star Nipun Karunanayake for the win over Attock and will again miss the talented batsman for the final league game after he returned home for a Sri Lankan A Team training camp.

Meanwhile, once the league season is resolved, Himley will then turn their attention to Sunday's Canterbury Cup final at New Road.

Wright's men will face Old Elizabethans in the grand final from 3pm following Bretforton's battle with Bromyard for the Plate glory from 11am.

Entry is free and The Graeme Hick Pavilion Bar will be open from 10am with drinks and refreshments available through out the day.
