Sykes is hoping to topple leaders
BISHOP'S Cleeve are hoping to return to action against top-of-the-table Hungerford Town tomorrow after losing their last two league fixtures to the weather.
Alex Sykes' bottom-of-the-table side were due to play Sholing and Taunton Town, but both were cancelled to extend their postponed game record to six in ten fixtures.
Victory at Hungerford, who are currently 38 points ahead of Cleeve, could lift them off the foot of the Division One South and West table and Sykes is keen for his side to seize the opportunity.
"We will definitely thrive on that, I think generally we can perform against any team in our league on our day," he said.

"I keep telling my players, we're only a third of the way through our games and actually we've got two thirds of the season left to play, so that's a lot of games to go."
Even if the league fixture is unable to go ahead, then Cleeve will instead play an arranged friendly against Gloucester City.
Sykes added: "If our game is postponed then we have a friendly against Gloucester.
"It gives me a chance to get the lads together and try some things with regards to our tactics, our shape and to sharpen up for the next game.
"It just gives us a chance to do something in a game situation and a competitive situation we wouldn't get otherwise."
