St Albans Cricket Club proved too strong for Holtwhites Trinibis on Saturday as they made it five wins on the spin with a 91-run victory.

St Albans batted first on home soil and looked to be in a spot of bother after seeing their entire order dismissed for 158 with 48 overs on the board.

That total looked more than attainable for Trinibis despite the fact they continue to flirt with the drop zone with the season reaching its close.

In truth, though, they never came close to worrying a St Albans side which has found its form at exactly the right moment in the season.

Such was the Clarence Park side's command with ball in hand, they needed only 19.5 overs to wrap up a victory which never looked in doubt.

Trinibis were ultimately skittled out for just 67, leaving St Albans to reflect on a win which keeps them in the hunt for a top spot heading into the final stages of the season.

The result leaves St Albans fifth in the Division Two A table after 14 games this season and they will look to carry their fine form into the final four games of the 2018 season.

They remain someway shy of the all-important top two places, with a 64-point gap separating the Saints and Hitchin, but will retain hopes of climbing the table.

St Albans' first chance to do just that comes with the visit of Preston Firsts on Saturday.

The game will represent a considerable test as they come up against the table toppers at Clarence Park.

Preston will be just as desperate to pick up a win and are defending a two-point cushion at the summit of the table.

The game starts a testing run of fixtures, with meetings with Berkhamsted and Watford Town, who sit fourth and third respectively, following Preston's visit.

St Albans finish the campaign against Totteridge Millhillians.
