Worthing Thunder faces a potential banana skin on Sunday afternoon as they travel to the north-west to square-off against NBL Division 1’s bottom side Lancashire Spinners.

Thunder come into Sunday’s clash on the back of a narrow 78-72 win over Hemel Storm, which secures the head-to-head between the two teams should the final league standings be decided by that when the regular season concludes.

They face a Spinners side that looks set for relegation following a winless league run of 18 games. However, Coach D is still not going to take them lightly, especially at this important stage of the NBL Division 1 season.

“Spinners haven’t lost all their games by big margins, they have been close in a lot of them as well and chances are they will have their full squad too so we can’t take anything for granted,” Coach D said.

“I want us to play with pride, professionalism and discipline on the day. I don’t want to be that first team that lost to Lancashire this season. It’s important that we focus on our strengths and play together.”

It’s just the one game this weekend for Thunder whereas the Spinners will play a double-header at home with playoff-chasing Leicester Warriors visiting Bury, the night before Worthing.

Thunder’s clash against Lancashire tips-off at 3:45 pm on Sunday afternoon at the Castle Leisure Centre.
