It’s now or never for Levett Essex Leopards as they face a pair of games on the road over the weekend.
The Big Cats travel to UEL Sports Dock on Saturday (5pm) to face London Lituanica (preview here) before moving on to Lancashire Spinners on Sunday afternoon (3pm).
Following Sunday’s 68-66 home defeat against Leicester Warriors, the Big Cats are staring relegation in the face and go into their final three games – all away from home – knowing that they may need to win them all to avoid the drop.
Sunday’s game is absolutely crucial as Leopards face a team who are two places above them in 11th place having won six of their 22 games.
The Big Cats had another one-point win against Spinners when they met at Brentwood just before Christmas as Tosin Oyelese’s last second shot gave them an 87-86 victory, and a win at Mysercough College would give them the head-to-head tiebreaker if they finished level with the Lancashire side.
