Baker looks for strong finish

As Leopards prepare to host Thames Valley Cavaliers at the Brentwood Centre on Sunday (4pm), coach Thomas Baker is looking for his side to finish the league season strongly.
“Recent results haven’t gone our way but we are still in the hunt for a play-off position and it is important we keep fighting to ensure we finish this season strongly” he said.
“Playing the last two games of the year at the Brentwood Centre is massive for us. To give our home fans something to cheer about and for them to get behind the team is important for us to build momentum as we look for a solid finish to the season.
“I am looking forward to seeing our fans and the guys are excited to step out on our home court again.”
Having been promoted last season, Cavaliers have made an excellent start to life in the top flight, and will go into the weekend in fourth spot with a 14-8 record and home court advantage in the play-offs virtually guaranteed.
Robert Banks’ side have been a thorn in Leopards’ side over the last couple of seasons, winning all five games between the clubs.
Leopards will again be running their pre-game coaching clinic with forward Asante Sandiford and other players, places can be booked through this website. Game tickets are also available online or on the door.
