WORTHING Thunder and Worcester Wolves will both be looking to end with a victory before waving Paul Smith’s Jets into the play-offs.
Having won only four of their 31 league games, Worthing will finish second-from-bottom in the BBL Championship and Thunder coach Gary Smith rates the Jets highly.
“Gareth Murray has just come off a great performance against Leicester,” he said. “Bell’s been a handful for all teams, Schneck has shown he’s one of the hardest working big men in the league, Greer has a consistent high level of play which often goes unheralded and you have Gayle and Davis off the bench!”
Thunder captain James Brame believes they could get something out of the game, however.
“We match up well with the Jets, and we’ve done well in both games up there this season,” he said. “They’ll want to go into the play-offs on a win, but it would be fantastic to win our last home game.”
Meanwhile, the Wolves have a very slender chance of making the playoffs, with their trip to the Northgate Arena potentially proving the decider.
Wolves forward David Watts is looking for revenge against the Jets after Paul Smith’s side beat them 75-72 at their place last month.
“We’ve got two must-win games this weekend, but we really need the Cheshire game badly,” he said. “We owe them from last time and we’re desperate to play into April.”
