Leicester Riders ready for Worcester Wolves test

Rob Paternostro
Paternostro's side are fourth in the BBL table

Leicester Riders coach Rob Paternostro is relishing the chance to face one of the BBL's best teams.

Riders, who have lost only once in six regular-season games and are fourth in the table, travel to face second-placed Worcester Wolves on 28 December.

Wolves lie second in the league table with an 8-2 record.

Paternostro said: "Worcester are playing great basketball. They have a nice mix and are a team that likes to play together. Confidence is high."

Riders have not played since mid-December when they coasted to victory over Durham.

"After the long break we are looking forward to getting back on the floor and competing again," Paternostro added.

"This will be our fifth league road game out of seven played and if you can get results on the road it can put you in a good position for the league."
