Men's Premier Handball League: Hawks and Wolves look to close gap

NEM Hawks and Warrington Wolves go into this weekend’s Men’s Premier Handball League matches looking to close the gap on London GD who, like second-place Olympia, are not in action. Hawks host Nottingham, while Wolves play Cambridge.

Elsewhere, there’s a big match at the bottom of the table between Liverpool and West London Eagles.

Hawks and Wolves both know victory would also see them leapfrog Olympia. Third-place Hawks go into their match on Saturday on the back of a three-match winning run. They face a Nottingham side that has won its last two games, including a one-goal thriller against West London Eagles last time out. Throw-off at Oldham Leisure Centre is at 15.00. The match is preceded by the Women’s Premier Handball League match at 13.00.

Wolves, who lie behind Hawks on goal difference, were edged out by table-toppers London GD in a nail-biter in their last match. After making a storming start to their season Warrington have gone three matches without a win. Previous to the defeat against GD they drew with Olympia and lost to Hawks. The defending champions will be bidding to get back to winning ways. Cambridge have also struggled of late with three straight defeats, a run that has seen them slip to sixth. Like Wolves they will be looking to turn that form around. Throw-off at Trafford Soccerdome on Saturday is at 16.30.

That match is followed by a crucial clash at the foot of the table when Liverpool host West London Eagles in a great double bill. Both sides go into the match having lost all their league matches so far this term. Eagles sit in seventh spot, ahead of promoted Liverpool on goal difference. Throw-off at Trafford Soccerdome on Saturday is at 19.00.
