The Big Cats’ 89-83 victory at leaders Hemel Storm on Saturday gave their title hopes a massive boost with Robert Youngblood’s team now holding the head-to-head decider against the Herts team, and they will look to extend a run which has seen them win seven of their last eight games.
Thunder will arrive at the Brentwood Centre in tenth place in the Division One table with an 8-14 record and although they look safe from relegation, they will still look to keep their outside chances of the play-offs alive.
Sunday’s game is sponsored by Curves & Couture who we thank for their continued support.
The Big Cats have travelled to Worthing twice this season, losing 80-69 in the National Trophy group stage before gaining revenge with an 89-72 league victory.
Leopards’ coach Robert Youngblood isn’t taking the south coast team lightly: “They’re very up and down” he said, “They’ve won by 40 at Leeds, yet lost at home against Medway Park.
“You have to respect their three-point shooting because if they get going they can cause you a lot of problems.”
