Warwickshire v Lancashire 

With two away wins and two home defeats in the premier division of the Riley’s BDO Inter County Championships so far this season, Warwickshire will be hoping to break their home voodoo when this weekend they will be playing hosts to high riding Lancashire at the Bishopsgate Club, Foleshill Road, Coventry. The visitors are currently second in the promotion table on 99 points, eight behind leaders Yorkshire and thirteen ahead of third placed Cambridgeshire. A further six points adrift is Warwickshire, who are in fourth place and although the fixture will be a tough one, home advantage surely at some stage has to kick in.
