IT'S advantage to the Cheshire Phoenix, but they’re sure to be in for a tough tussle as they continue their play-off quest this evening.

Ben Thomas’ side head to Bristol Flyers holding the advantage in the best-of-three post-season series.

That came about courtesy of a thrilling 91-90 win at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village last weekend, when time just ran out on an epic Bristol fightback.

MVP was Laquincy Rideau who hit a 22-point, 11-assist double-double to spearhead his team’s 1-0 advantage.

Also this evening, Newcastle Eagles and Surrey Scorchers host Caledonia Gladiators and London Lions respectively.

Leicester take on Sheffield tomorrow.
