Summary: The Eagles recorded an impressive home win over Glasgow Rocks last Friday even without Orlan Jackman and Darius Defoe, while Cheshire defeated Leeds before leading Leicester at half-time. With the Riders not in action, it gives Fab Flournoy’s side a chance to further close the gap.

Stat attack: Rahmon Fletcher and Deondre Parks are third and fourth in the league’s scoring leader charts with averages of just under 20 points per game.

Season record: Eagles 2-0 Phoenix (3-0 all comps)
