NEWBURY Blues will look to maintain their march towards the South West 1 East title on Saturday when they return to action after the Christmas break.
Blues, who are 16 points clear at the top, entertain Trowbridge at Monks Lane (3pm) following a two-week lay-off and they will be determined to make it 15 wins out of 15.
