HIMLEY skipper Greg Wright wants his side to maintain their form when they travel to pacesetters Wolverhampton.

Himley couldn't bag the final wicket to force victory at home to Tamworth last Saturday but did come away with a winning draw after having to bat first.

The hosts lost their top three for just 46 runs but Nipun Karunanayake hit a brilliant unbeaten 121 as they made 213 in their 55 overs at Stourbridge Road.

Aqab Ahmed then took six wickets as Himley chased victory.

However, the visitors held on as they ended on 191-9 to take something from the contest.

Himley will now go to Birmingham and District League Division Two leaders Wolverhampton this Saturday.

Wright said: "Tamworth have not had the best start and we knew it was always going to be tough with the uncontested tosses.

"But we fought really well against the new ball and Nipun played a brilliant innings in the circumstances to get the bowlers something to bowl at.

"We weren't able to snatch the win but getting a winning draw in the circumstances is really pleasing and we're now playing somewhere near what we are capable of.

"We really are on the right track and we can hopefully back it up against Wolverhampton.

"They've had a good start but we need to make sure we continue the form we've shown over the last few weeks." Wright missed the clash against Tamworth but is due back this weekend.
