KIRKBY Lonsdale captain Ben Walker is expecting a special day at Underley Park next week as the already-crowned North One West champions aim to round off their spectacular campaign with their 100 per cent record in tact.
Kirkby registered their 25th win of the season with a 45-12 win at Wilmslow where seven tries put them on the brink of a perfect season.
Only Blackburn, currently seventh in the table and capable of a big result on their day, remain to be overcome. When the two met on the opening day of the season, Kirkby won 27-14.
"It's something we have been working towards for a few years as a group and it would be an enormous achievement," said Walker.
"Playing at Underley is massive advantage and there'll be a good turnout and a big atmosphere.
"We're hoping for a special day and it should be a great occasion."
Wilmslow took an early lead on Saturday but Kirkby responded as winning teams do to leave Cheshire with the victory and their 24th bonus point of the season.
But as the level-headed Walker has eluded to every week, there can be no room for complacency when everybody else is looking cause an upset.
"We've one game at home to go and we're looking forward to it," he added. "We'll take it as seriously as any other game as we've got this record to uphold.
"I'd say we're quietly confident rather than overly confident.
"You can guarantee Blackburn will want to come and spoil it for us. They will want to be the team that beat Kirkby. But we will stick to as similar a team as we can and hopefully carry on playing the rugby we have all season."
