Leeds Force v Bristol Flyers 
BBL Championship
Friday, April 27th 2018
SGS College Arena
SOLD OUT!

Bristol Flyers look to secure a higher play-off seed, as they host Leeds Force on Friday night (7:30pm).

Everything you need to know on Friday night’s opponents can be found below.


LEEDS FORCE

Last summer, Leeds Force made a number of changes in the hopes of changing their basketball fortunes. Unfortunately, despite bringing in new Head Coach Danny Nelson, Leeds have failed to make any progress. Force are currently dead last in the BBL with a singular win in their 2017/18 campaign. The dreams of returning to the play-offs have long been dead for Force.


ONE TO WATCH

#15 Gazmend Sinani

Leeds Force have had a lot of player turnover this year, which makes Coach K’s scouting job that much harder. 

Leeds’ Gazmend Sinani, who can play both guard and the forward position, has been a threat offensively. He has led Force in scoring over the last three games with 17 points per game on 46% shooting. The 6’7 Republic of Kosovo native is expected to play on Friday and could cause problems on the perimeter against Flyers’ shorter guards.


HEAD COACH

Danny Nelson had coaching stints with the Irish Junior, Men and Women’s professional teams. Force’s Head Coach has also coached in the Australian domestic league and the German Professional league, allowing him to take influence and implement ideas from other top flight basketball clubs.


LAST TIME OUT

Bristol Flyers got back to winning ways with a tough victory over a spirited Leeds Force.

Rohndell Goodwin top scored for Flyers with 24 points, with Leeds Force's Eric Curth just behind on 23. 


DID YOU KNOW?

Leeds Force have the worst defensive rating in the league, as they concede the highest amount of points in the BBL by allowing their opponents to score an average of 104.4 per game.

Friday's game will be available to watch LIVE via the BBL’s official streaming partner, LiveBaketball.TV (subscription) - click here to sign up NOW.


GAMEDAY PARKING
