DUDLEY Heathens are hunting down the first National League silverware of the season when they face Mildenhall in the second leg of the National Shield at Wolverhampton on Tuesday (7.30).

And the former Cradley club have been warned to be on their guard against a Fen Tigers side who have a good record around Monmore having won there in the league in the last two seasons.

The visitors bring a 47-46 lead from the first leg at West Row with the tie beautifully poised.

Heathens boss Will Pottinger said: “This is going to be a very good night of racing and we will need to be on our game.
