WORCESTER Wolves have a key clash tonight if they are to avoid the British Basketball League wooden spoon (7.30pm).

Surrey Scorchers visit the University of Worcester Arena just two points ahead of bottom-of-the-table Wolves but having played a game more.

Both sides are out of contention for the play-offs and Worcester won the last meeting 84-79 at the arena in February.

Wolves will leapfrog Scorchers with a win that would secure the head-to-head record as well which currently stands at 1-1.

Head coach Tony Garbelotto admitted: “This is a cup final for both teams.”

Wolves then head to Crystal Palace National Sports Centre tomorrow to face fifth-placed London City Royals (7.30pm).

Meanwhile, Wolves say guard Adam Thoseby, 27, has been granted his request to leave the club.

Thoseby, who represented Great Britain at the European Under 20 Championships and played for England in the Commonwealth Games, has captained the side during a tough campaign.
