Shaw Cross Sharks, Dewsbury Celtic and Dewsbury Moor are targeting play-off glory in the National Conference League.

Shaw Cross have two games of their regular season remaining and are handily placed to extend their campaign into the play-offs.

The sharks lie sixth in Division One, a point behind Ince Rose Bridge and Hunslet Warriors and two ahead of seventh placed York Acorn.

The Sharks know three points will be enough to guarantee a play-off spot and they could climb as high as fourth place, which would give them a home tie in the semi-finals.

They meet two clubs who have already had relegation to Division Two confirmed as Salford City Roosters visit Leeds Road on Saturday before the Sharks visit Wigan St Judes in their final match next week.

Dewsbury Celtic and Dewsbury Moor have already booked their play-off places but both face tough semi-finals on Saturday.

Celtic finished sixth in Division Two and they travel to Leigh East, who ended the campaign eight points better off than the Dewsbury side.

The other second division semi-final sees Blackbrook playing host to Underbank Rangers.

Dewsbury Moor are bidding to join local rivals Thornhill Trojans in Division Two but face a tough play-0ff semi-final trip to Drighlington.

The winners face either Stanningley or Woolston Rovers in the Division Three play-off final.

Moor’s Pennine League side are also back in action on Saturday when they visit Wortley Dragons in the Supplementary Cup first round.
