Revenge on the horizon for Stefan Gill as Manchester Giants face Plymouth Raiders in BBL

By Sarah Brook

Manchester Giants will be looking for revenge tonight when they take on Plymouth Raiders after suffering their worst defeat of the season away to them in October.

The Giants cruised to victory last time out against Mersey Tigers and after a week off, they will be hoping to return to the court in fine form.

Giants guard, Stefan Gill is confident his team can secure the win if they perform and match the energy of their opposition.

“Plymouth are not invincible,” said Gill.

“I’m feeling confident ahead of tomorrow night as with each practice, we get better and better.

“We aren’t the same team we were when we played Plymouth at their place and regardless of what happens, I remain confident in our team.

“It’s pretty simple – the team with the most points at the end of a game wins so as long as we play the game 2 points at a time and focus on limiting their scoring opportunities, we will come out on top.”

With new signing Ben Eaves set to feature in the squad, the former Great Britain under-23-player is confident the Giants can make the most of their home advantage.

He said: “Hopefully, with it being a home game we can look to redeem ourselves when in front of the home crowd.

“It is a good opportunity to show how far we’ve come in this short season that it’s been so far, it should be a good opportunity to get them back definitely,” he added.

Raiders – who lost last week to Surrey – will be fired up ahead of tomorrow’s game and searching for the win to put them ahead of Giants in the league.

Tip-off is 7.30pm at the Wright Robinson Sports College in Gorton.
