WILTSHIRE will look to force themselves into the reckoning for top spot in their Unicorns Twenty20 group this weekend when taking on Wales in a double-header at Warminster.

Ed Young’s side claimed a confidence-boosting victory last weekend when defeating Devon in controversial circumstances following a heavy downpour during their Unicorns Knockout Trophy match.

Wiltshire triumphed courtesy of a bowl out as they continue to make a positive start in all formats to the 2019 season.

Sunday’s double header sees Young’s charges take on the team directly above them in their T20 group in the penultimate round of fixtures.

Wiltshire, who are currently third in the group, will likely need to win at least three of their final four fixtures if they are to stand a chance of topping the group.

Should Wiltshire be successful in this weekend’s crunch ties, they will play current group leaders Dorset in their final round of games with the winner ultimately taking the number one spot in the five-team division.

And despite the uphill task ahead, Young remains confident and has backed his boys to continue the momentum from the previous batch of games against Devon and Cornwall.

He said: “Because we’ve had two pairs of fixtures down in Cornwall and Devon, we’ve had a couple of weeks off from Twenty20, so it would be really nice to take that momentum that we had from the previous round of T20s into the Wales games.

“We’re in quite a nice position in the group, so if we can get two wins on Sunday then it will put us in good stead to finish top of the group.

“We’ve had some fascinating games – we’ve had a couple of last-over finishes, but hopefully we’ll be able to come out with an easier win this time around.”
