What do Bristol Flyers need to do to make the play-offs?

The 2018/19 BBL regular season comes to an end this weekend, and with both the league title and play-off places still to be decided, it could be one of the most exciting ends to a campaign in recent years.

But what do the Coach K's men need to to do in order to return to the BBL play-offs?

AS IT STANDS

League Table

TEAM P W L PTS
6 Worcester Wolves 28 13 15 26
7 Sheffield Sharks 25 12 13 24
8 Bristol Flyers 25 10 15 20
9 Surrey Scorchers 24 9 15 18
10 Manchester Giants 26 9 17 18

Following Thursday night's results, Bristol Flyers MUST win twice this weekend and require Plymouth OR Cheshire to lose their final game of the regular season.

It’s still possible for Flyers to win BOTH games this weekend and NOT qualify for the play-offs if Cheshire AND Plymouth both pick up wins on Sunday.

Flyers will not qualify for the play-offs if the lose a game this weekend.

The good news is that Flyers hold the head-to-head record over Cheshire and Plymouth, meaning that they will finish above either team if they end the regular season on the same number of wins.

At the end of the day, anything can happen. But Bristol Flyers will certainly be watching both Cheshire and Plymouth after their game against Surrey this weekend.




THURSDAY GAMES

London City Royals 93-99 Cheshire Phoenix
Sheffield Sharks 104-86 Newcastle Eagles (Flyers can no longer finish above Sheffield Sharks)

FRIDAY GAMES

Bristol Flyers v London City Royals (7.30pm)


SUNDAY GAMES

Surrey Scorchers v Bristol Flyers (2pm)
Glasgow Rocks v Plymouth Raiders (5pm)
Cheshire Phoenix v Worcester Wolves (5.30pm)
