Bridlington beat York 33-32 at Dukes Park last season.

Bridlington will be hoping a week off will help them to return to winning ways when they host York on Saturday.

Two successive defeats, against Bradford & Bingley and Hullensians, have seen the Dukes Park outfit slip to fourth in the Yorkshire One table.

Paul Cook has a full-strength squad available, and will be confident of replicating Bridlington’s 41-16 win in the reverse fixture at Clifton Park in October.

The three sides above Bridlington in the table, Bradford & Bingley, Malton & Norton and Hullensians, all have difficult-looking away fixtures so Cook’s men have a chance to make up ground.

Bridlington’s third team are also at home to York on Saturday.
