Cleckheaton are targeting an 11th straight win in North One East tomorrow when Wheatley Hills visit Moorend (kick off 2.15pm).

Cleck racked up a 16th win of the campaign when they overcame a potential banana skin to defeat Alnwick 40-7 and maintain their 14-point lead at the top of the table.

They have named James Crowther in a 19-man squad as one player faces a late fitness test.

The Moorenders take a break from league action the following Saturday when they are due to entertain Sheffield in the Yorkshire Cup, before facing their two closest rivals.

Cleck travel to West Hartlepool on February 8 and host YMCA on February 15 as their march towards the title continues.
