WASHINGTON, April 9 - Democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are facing off in a US presidential nominating contest in Wyoming on Saturday, as the candidates gear up for a crucial match-up in New York.

Sanders, a US senator from Vermont, is fresh off a string of recent wins and looking to continue chipping away at Clinton's sizeable lead in the number of delegates needed to secure the party's nomination.

Just 14 Democratic delegates are up for grabs in Wyoming - fewer than any other state - and even a commanding win by Sanders there would do little to help him close the gap.

Clinton currently has more than half of the 2,383 delegates needed to win the nomination. Sanders trails her by 250 pledged delegates, those awarded proportionate to the popular vote in the state nominating contests.
