The Leicester Riders Women take on Barking Abbey this afternoon in the WBBL at 1pm.
Head Coach Matthew Harber is looking forward to the game but is conscious of the tough test the Crusaders will provide the Riders roster.
“This weekend’s game is going to be a really tough test for us and crucial if we want to stay in the top 4.
Barking are a really physical team and well coached too. They’re completely different to when we played them earlier in the year and they have some real talent – both experienced and youthful.
Their backcourt of Naydenova-Goryanova and Brantlova is very dangerous and also their front court of Wabara, Wheeler and Wilkinson is tough too. I think we match-up pretty well with them and I’m excited to see how this one plays out.”
