Shropshire v Bedfordshire:-

In division four of the BDO Inter County Championships Shropshire County Darts Organisation have two wins and two defeats from their opening four fixtures. This coming weekend they will be taking on Bedfordshire at their home venue The Royal, Delaware Avenue, Albrighton, Wolverhampton, WV7 3BW in what will be the middle of the season encounter.

It will be no easy task for the hosts as their opponents are riding high in a lofty second position in the table with 90 points just eight short of leaders Leicestershire while Shropshire who are currently placed in a healthy fifth place are on 76 points. However two wins in the first four games is their best start to their season since the 2014 – 2015 season and a win would certainly confirm the improvement in the team and at the same time set them up for their next fixture which is a tough away game against leaders Leicestershire.
