Manchester Giants v London City Royals
Where: George H Carnall, Kingsway Park, Urmston, M41 7FJ
When: Thursday, April 11, tip-off 7.30pm
What: BBL Championship
The Giants’ Play-off mission is still alive despite a few hiccups along the way recently.
The win at Plymouth kept Danny Byrne’s men in contention but defeat at Newcastle last weekend saw the team slip to 10th place, two outside the post-season places.
But it remains very tight with only two points separating seventh and 10th.
The Giants face the Royals for the third time this season, with the London team having taken one home and away so far.

What the coach says
Danny Byrne: “It’s the business-end of the regular season and we need some more wins to make sure it doesn’t end there for us.
“There are five games remaining for us to book a place in the Play-offs. It has been a successful season so far – we have won more games than ever.
