Caledonia Pride face another test of their mettle at Oriam as they welcome current league leaders Leicester Riders, just two weeks after facing then leaders Sevenoaks Suns on home soil.  In the latter encounter Pride produced a great performance only to come up just short of ending the Suns 12-match winning streak, the match ending 59-56 in the visitors favour.

Unfortunately last weekend Caledonia Pride suffered a double-header of road defeats – against Manchester Mystics and Nottingham Wildcats – which has dragged Pride into three-way scrap with Cardiff Met Archers and Oaklands Wolves for the two final play-off spots, with all three teams currently on 10 points.

To this afternoon’s encounter and Leicester Riders arrive with a record of 14 wins and just 1 defeat so far this season.  The Riders are a daunting proposition but if Pride can reproduce their form of two weeks ago when the ran Sevenoaks Suns so close the home side could just spring a surprise tonight.

Can Pride take a win that could see them move one step closer to a guaranteed play-off place?  Or will Leicester Riders prove too strong.  Purchase your ticket in advance and head to Oriam to find out!

Previous head-to-head: Back in October with Leicester Riders taking a home victory by 85 points to 63.
