With both sides involved in close battles on the ladder, the victor will welcome the points when Exies take on Hanwood under lights on Saturday evening at Exies No 1.
Exies have been sitting at the top of the table for most of the season before having a tough run of games heading into the Christmas break seeing them go four games without a win which includes three loss and a washout.
The run has seen them chased down by Diggers who were able to leapfrog them on percentage.
Hanwood is locked in a three-way fight over the final two finals positions with a four-point gap to Leagues while they are seven points behind third-placed Coro who have the bye this weekend.
The Hanwood side will be coming into the game chasing their first win in four games.
In the two meetings between so far this season, both sides have picked up a win apiece with Exies taking the 40-over encounter while Hanwood took out an outright victory in the timed match.
