WORCESTER Wolves look to secure a third consecutive win over a much-fancied London Lions team on Friday night (7.30pm).

Lions head to the University of Worcester Arena in the BBL Championship bidding to avenge two defeats this season in the BBL Cup South Group.

And last season's table-toppers have started their league campaign with an unbeaten 4-0 streak.

Wolves, who won 90-85 at Lions on November 8 after thrashing them 92-67 at home on the opening day, lost 76-69 to Glasgow Rocks last Friday in an error-strewn performance.

A string of Wolves turnovers tipped the outcome in Glasgow’s favour and sentenced the hosts to a second league defeat from the first three games.

Amir Williams posted 20 points and 11 rebounds but otherwise only Cortez Edwards and Kofi Josephs enjoyed double-digit scoring with 17 and 12 respectively.

Williams and Edwards made the All-Star Five bench for week 14 as a result.

On the Lions clash, Worcester head coach Matt Newby said: "It doesn't come any tougher than that.

"They're on fine form. It really is a serious unit that we're facing and they already have a pretty strong record.

"They've started well after a pretty tough cup campaign.

"We need to be at our best and ultimately the players and I have a responsibility to ensure that we are at the races."

Newby said of the Rocks defeat: "It was a strange one. The pace and rhythm of the game was very unsettled.

"We had the opportunity to take the game and we've missed it. I have to give credit to Glasgow.

"Sometimes you need to be able to ride out ugly games but they came out on top.

"The decision-making wasn't particularly good. There were a lot of second-chance opportunities, we had 17 turnovers.

"There is a bit of soul-searching to be done about the energy, enthusiasm and impact that we brought to the game.

"We only performed in spurts and you can't do that in basketball."

Wolves head to Manchester Giants for a league clash at George Carnell Sports Centre on Sunday (5pm).
