Plymouth Raiders bid to keep play-off hopes alive against Leicester Riders

raidersINJURY-hit Plymouth Raiders face a tough test on Wednesday night when they travel to second-placed Leicester Riders (tip-off 7.30pm).

Tenth-placed Raiders really need to cause an upset to keep alive their faint play-off hopes.

Back-to-back wins over Durham Wildcats and a victory over Glasgow Rocks have given Jay Marriott’s side hope that they can sneak a top eight spot.

They are now just four points behind eighth-placed Bristol with two matches in hand, although Manchester, in ninth, are also battling for the final place in the end of season competition. However, Raiders head to Leicester with doubts over a number of players, including Brent Benson and Jordan Clarke.

It will the second time Raiders have travelled to the Riders in two weeks. They last played them on March 28 when they lost 106-86.
