WORCESTER Wolves will continue their push for a top four finish in the BBL Championship tonight (Friday) when they travel to the Manchester Giants.

Wolves will be aiming to bounce back from last weekend's 97-91 home defeat to the Surrey Heat with victory against a side who are fighting for a top eight finish and a place in the end-of-season BBL Playoffs.

This will be the second clash of the season between the sides after Wolves beat the Giants 92-80 back in September.

Wolves can seal the head-to-head series win with victory this evening.

The hosts go into the game in a poor run of form having only won two of their last seven matches in all competitions. But Wolves head coach Paul James is anticipating a tough encounter despite their lowly league position of 11th.

"The Giants have a lot of good British talent on their roster and have players who can score in many different ways if you allow them to play with freedom," he said.

"We really need to make sure that whatever we decide to do as a team, we stick to it and do it well."
