WORCESTER Wolves star Kofi Josephs says the BBL Cup “feels like our event” with the final “just down the road” at the Arena Birmingham.

Worcester are looking to book their place at the venue but Leicester Riders stand in their way.

Last season’s play-off winners, who have won their past five meetings with Wolves, will head to the University of Worcester Arena for the first leg of the semi-final tonight (7.30pm).

But with the home fans behind Wolves Birmingham-born Josephs is optimistic about his side’s chances of seeing off Riders.

“I am feeling confident,” Josephs said.

“The team has been practising really well, the coach has put the skills together and we are ready for this.

“It’s huge especially as it is just down the road.

“It feels like our event with (the final) being in Birmingham.

“It would be huge for the club and the players to be on such a national stage, playing in front of everybody.

“I feel like we have really got a chance.”

The second leg will be in Leicester on Friday, January 3.

And Josephs hopes Wolves will go into that encounter after a big home victory.

“The crowd can give us an extra 10 to 15 points,” Josephs said.

“You have seen that when it has been pretty close or we have been losing the supporters have got behind us and we have brought it back.

“In the first leg you want to try to create as big of a gap as possible on the winning side, so hopefully we can do that.”

Wolves travel down to M5 neighbours Bristol Flyers for more league action tomorrow (7.30pm).
