They defeated Turnpike on Wednesday, while closest rivals Saxons ceded a single frame to Golden Lion to remain in contention.

Broughton’s title hopes are intact too after Mike Beeston’s maximum break helped them to a 7-1 success against Boar’s Head.

Feathers’ revival continues after they beat Big Lock, while Knights Grange improved their position after edging out strugglers Top House.
