Aire face local rivals Leeds Modernians at Nunroyd this weekend with the hope of climbing up the table.

Sitting one point below Sheff Meds and only 4 points above Baildon (in the relegation zone) Aire know that a win would do their chances of survival a massive boost against the league's bottom club.

As discussed in training, we can't take this fixture lightly having come second best in a high scoring affair at Cookrige Lane earlier on in the season.

Due to illness and unavailability, Aire shuffle the deck.
Among those unavailable from last week are Tim Baxter, Harry Beckwith, Tony Clitheroe and Charlie Middleton.

The front five remain the same with the front row trio of Martyn Booth, Nick Jackson and Rich Lister resuming duty. They will be assisted by last week's Man of The Match, Alan Justham and Sy 'Big John' Hill.

The back row (hopefully) welcomes back Mikey 'Little John' Dolan to open side, while pack leader Chris Chapman moves across to blindside with Jonny Mackey continuing at 8.

Directing traffic in the half backs are Stuart Wilson and captain Ollie Catherall.

Aireborough welcome Nick Holdsworth back to 12 meaning that Lewis Barrett moves out one to 13.

The back 3 of Jamie Sykes, Lewis Myers and Harley Stevenson-Cocks remains in situ from last week.

On the bench, Eddie Brewer, Freddie Armstrong, Phil Shopland-Reed, and Joe White all come into the squad while Adam Bishop again provides added support to the back line.

Kick off is 2:15pm

See you all there,

Si
