Flyers Play-Off Fate To Be Decided

It’s the final weekend of the BBL Championship regular season, with all eyes on the battle between Bristol Flyers and Manchester Giants for the final play-off spot.

Plymouth Raiders dropped out of the race following their 90-93 loss to Manchester Giants last Sunday, leaving just Flyers and Giants capable of claiming 8th spot.

It’s still very much in Giants’ hands with Jeff Jones’ men level on points and with a game in hand on Flyers. It’s not all plain sailing for Giants with Flyers having the upper hand when it comes to head-to-head records should the teams finish level on points at the end of the weekend.

PlayOffRaceUpdated

Giants face two teams who have already secured their spots in the play-offs this weekend, away to Sheffield Sharks this Friday night before finishing their season at home to London Lions.

Giants are safe in the knowledge that if they win both these games they will guarantee their play-off place. Should the Giants lose one of these games then a win for Flyers at home to a Leeds Force side, already beaten twice this season by Coach K’s men, will see Flyers claim the final spot.

If Giants fail to win both of their games this weekend, the result of the Flyers game is redundant with the Bristol side finishing 8th thanks to their superior head-to-head record.

Flyers will be roared on by a sell-out crowd this Saturday as they aim to make the Play-Offs in their debut BBL season for the first time since Everton Tigers in 2007-08.

Final fixtures:

Bristol Flyers:
Leeds Force (H) – Saturday, April 18th – SOLD OUT

Manchester Giants:
Sheffield Sharks (A) – Friday, April 17th
London Lions (H) – Sunday, April 19th
