Manchester Giants v Cheshire Phoenix
Where: Trafford Sportsdome, Trafford Way, Manchester, M17 8DD
When: Wednesday, January 23, tip-off 7.30pm
What: BBL Championship

News

The Giants go into the clash with their North West rivals looking to extend their winning league run to four games and claim the head-to-head record over Cheshire.

They won the opening Championship game between the two teams last month and a 2-0 advantage in the three-game series would give Danny Byrne’s seventh-placed side an edge in the battle for the Play-off spots with the table currently very tight.

The Giants are in tip-top mood after their winning double-header weekend that saw victories over the Eagles in the Trophy quarter-final and the Flyers in the league.

What the coach is saying

Danny Byrne: “We got what we deserved over the weekend by sticking together and working hard.

“We have three consecutive leagues wins and would love to make it four – and get that head-to-head. That could end up being so important for the Play-offs which have to out priority.

“The crowd were amazing for the final 10 minutes of the win over the Flyers and we’d love it to be the same again when Cheshire come here.”
