Buxton RUFC aim to get back onto the winning trail in the league this weekend, after their exploits in the cup recently.

The Bucks defeated Ashfield at home last weekend to seal their place in the final of the NLD Plate.

Buxton edged a tight semi-final 14-13 at Sunnyfields after Ashfield missed a last-gasp penalty that would have seen them triumph.

Buxton will now meet the winner of the Boston-Tupton semi-final, which takes place this Saturday.

A date and venue for the Plate final has yet to be confirmed.

On Saturday the Bucks will be on the road at Oldershaw for a clash that pits fifth against fourth in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Three.
