News

The Giants go into the final two weeks of the regular season still fighting for the final BBL Play-off spot.

Eighth place in the standings is still up for grabs despite the Giants’ disappointing loss to Bristol Flyers on Saturday.

The team are level with the Flyers and Cheshire Phoenix – who they visit on Friday – on 26 points and need a win to reignite their hopes of making the post-season.

The Sharks are fifth in the standings but Danny Byrne’s men have beaten them twice already this season.

After the trip to Cheshire, the Giants final regular-season game is at home to Leicester Riders on Sunday, April 19.

What the coach says

Danny Byrne: “Saturday was disappointing but there is no time to dwell on that now. We have to be ready and focused to go into another game against a good team.
