The futures of two of the borough's cricket clubs look set to rest on a single decision by the Middlesex County Cricket League.
Wycombe House have one game left to play in Division Three but will not be able to escape bottom place following last Saturday's home defeat to Uxbridge.
Meanwhile, just the other side of Osterley Park, Osterley also have just one game left, and need just six points to be crowned Middlesex Championship champions for the fourth successive year.
For the last three, the Tentelow Lane outfit have been denied promotion due to a number of factors, but are confident of being let into the County League this time.
And if they do, it will be at the expense of their near-neighbours from Jersey Road.
Osterley's Asad Rizvi said: "The County League people came down to see our last game and seemed happy with our progress, so hopefully this will be our year.
"The other teams are getting fed up with us winning every year and keep saying they hope we go up too.
"We don't belong in it any-more, to be honest. We have proved ourselves to be the best team in the league four years in a row now."
Osterley are also looking into whether or not a fourth successive title is a record for any cricket league in the country.
First, they need to score a minimum of 125 runs against Edmonton on Saturday to get the six batting points needed to win the title.
One-time title rivals Edmonton are out of the chase, and the only team who can catch Osterley is second-placed MKSCC, but even they are 25 points adrift.
However, it would have been a closer last-day if Ashraf Ali had not taken the final Old Lyonians wicket with the penultimate ball of last Saturday's game.
Ali and Abid Ahmed both hit half-centuries as Osterley posted 260-6, but they laboured with their bowling, and it looked like Lyonians would hold out for a draw on 122-9 until Ali took the final wicket with one ball left.
It was the bowling which let Wycombe House down too in their do-or-die clash with Uxbridge.
Teenage star Gurjit Sandhu hit an unbeaten maiden century as House declared on 233-4 after 50 overs, with Akshay Beshwakh also unbeaten on 29, Carl Burdett smashing 44 and Brian Mayers hitting 30.
But Uxbridge made their target with five overs left.
