YORKSHIRE Phoenix take on Kent Spitfires at Headingley tomorrow in a game which both sides must win if they are to stand a decent chance of going on to finish up as champions of the Norwich Union National League.

Both teams are wedged together in the middle of the table on eight points although Yorkshire have a marked advantage in that they have only played four games which is two fewer than their opponents.

Yorkshire suffered a blow a fortnight ago when they lost to Leicestershire Foxes at Headingley and they cannot afford many more slips if they are to gain ground on either Worcestershire Royals, who have won five of their six matches, or Somerset Sabres who have a 100 per cent record after four outings.

Skipper David Byas said that Craig White, Paul Hutchison and Anthony McGrath would be added to the team which beat Kent in the Championship yesterday.

If England all-rounder Craig White is fully fit after his knee injury and does play, however, Byas confirmed that White would move down the order so that Gary Fellows could continue to open.

In White's absence, Fellows scored 30 and put on 77 with Byas for the first wicket against Gloucestershire Gladiators and he then rapped out a career-best 65 against Foxes.

"If Craig does come back he will be expected to bowl and play a full part in the match," said Byas.

"This is a very important game and we must win it if we are to climb up the table."
