Following their shock 20-16 defeat away to Hertfordshire, West Midlands will be hoping to return to winning ways again this coming weekend when they entertain Oxfordshire in the latest of their BDO Inter County Championship fixtures in division one.

With four wins in their opening four fixtures the Hertfordshire result was quite a surprise but now it has to be put behind them and they have to concentrate on this their next game and promotion. The current situation in the division sees West Midlands on 113 points just one short of leaders Cheshire and nine ahead of third placed London. Oxfordshire are seventh in the table with 96 points so home advantage plus taking into account the two counties records so far West Midlands should by all accounts be favourites to win.
