All the key information on Saturday's BBL opponents can be found below.

MANCHESTER GIANTS
Giants enter Saturday's game on the back of six straight defeats, sitting bottom of the BBL table. Giants have looked to arrest this slump in form with two new additions this week - Frenchman Lukas Sipetic, a 6ft 1in guard and Mike Creppy a 6ft 3ins American guard who previously played in the BBL at Worcester and Cheshire. Creppy will go straight into the squad for this game.

HEAD COACH
Yorick Williams - One of the most controversial players in BBL history, Williams took the reigns from Jeff Jones as a player-coach for the Manchester Giants. Williams has played over 5600 minutes in the BBL, scoring over 6200 points for six different clubs.

ONE TO WATCH
Samuel Toulwase - The former Sheffield Sharks guard signed for Giants in October having won the BBL Playoffs with Sharks back in May. Toulwase has averaged 17.82 points this year, including a 28-point haul the last time these two sides met in November.

FORM*:
Giants: LLLLLL
