Riders look to get back on track

Leicester will be looking to get their title challenge back on track when they host Glasgow Rocks on Saturday.

Leicester will be looking to get their title challenge back on track when they host Glasgow Rocks on Saturday.

The Riders were beaten at home to MK Lions last weekend, which has seen them lose ground on Newcastle and Worcester at the top of the table.

Glasgow have been looking over their shoulders in recent weeks, slipping to a 7-7 record, and their injury-hit bench suffered a poor home defeat against Mersey last Sunday, the Tigers’ first win on the road all season.

Riders coach Rob Paternostro said: “The Rocks have struggled with injuries this season but are a team that is well coached and have many players who have contributed. Mychal Green has had a very good start to his season and is a player that can be explosive.

“I have a lot of respect for Sterling [Davis], his teams have always been well prepared over the years.”

Davis’ men could fall behind MK and Sheffield with defeat in this match, with the pair breathing down their necks in the BBL table.
