SKIPPER Steve Ogilby is urging Chester Boughton Hall to stand up and be counted when they take on fourth-placed Cheadle tomorrow.
Hall suffered a shock 114-run defeat against lowly Cheadle Hulme last week, a result that saw title rivals Urmston regain top spot in Division One.
'We had a bit of a shocker last week,' said Ogilby.
'I think in the season you are bound to have a blip at some point and that is what we are putting last week down to.
'We are hoping the whole team will now stand up and be counted.'
Hall struggled from the start against Cheadle Hulme as strong batting from Richard Battye (71no) saw the Grove Park outfit declare on 199-4.
In reply Hall's main batsmen struggled and although Fred Owen scored 24 they slumped to 85ao.
In the Premier Division, CHRISTLETON head into their clash with Neston on the back of a high-scoring draw at Oxton.
The Little Heath side were first to bat and amassed 262-8 with Nick O'Donnell (61) and Darren Cruikshank (38) leading the way.
However, Oxton fought back and Mark Rowlands' 68 steered them to a draw as they closed on 257-8.
NESTON will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways against Christleton after suffering a seven-wicket loss at leaders Hyde.
Simon Marshall (39) was their top run-scorer as they attained a modest total of 146ao. But in reply Hyde comfortably reached their target with 149-3.
Champions OULTON PARK entertain fourth-placed Nantwich with captain Nathan Dumelow billing it as a key match in his side's season.
The Little Budworth outfit have been in magnificent form in recent weeks, having secured maximum points from their last three league matches.
Their skipper is hoping they can maintain their good form against Nantwich.
Dumelow said: 'We are doing very well at the moment and we want to keep it up.
'It will be a tough match against Nantwich because they are a very good side and with us just three points behind the leaders it could be a very important game for us.'
Park go into the match on the back of an impressive nine-wicket victory at Toft.
The hosts batted first and notched 238ao (Chris Jones 5-63) but Park reached their target comfortably courtesy of an unbroken double century partnership between Danny Leech (130) and Ben Spendlove (94).
In Division Two on Saturday, MALPAS upset in-form Warrington, claiming a two-wicket home victory.
Paul Tong claimed 5-57 as Warrington set 138 (Ben Smith 55). Johnny Suckley's men then scraped home to 139-8. Malpas, who are seventh, go to Grappenhall tomorrow.
