After Leicester Riders’ 80-84 thrilling overtime win against the London Lions at the Copper Box Arena; the Riders look ahead to next weekends’ back to games against Manchester Giants.

This Saturday, 18th February, the Giants travel down to Leicester Sports Arena for a 19:45 tip off and then take the long trip up to Manchesters’ Lucozade Powerleague Trafford Soccerdome for a 17:00 tip off on Sunday.

These 2 fixtures come after a challenging stretch of the Riders season having played Glasgow Rocks away, Newcastle Eagles at home and London Lions away all in the space of 9 days.

However, after the recent 54-81 away win in Manchester in late January, Riders will be hoping that they can keep their excellent form going and extend their 9 match winning streak to 11 after this weekend.

Riders have been in excellent form recently winning 10 in a row with an impressive 18-2 record in the BBL Championship that they’ll be looking to extend to 20-2 this weekend.
