Manchester Thunder and Hertfordshire Mavericks remain level on points at the top of netball's Superleague following victories on Saturday.

Mavericks beat Surrey Storm 55-50 at the London Live game at the Copper Box.

Thunder had earlier secured a narrow 49-44 victory at bottom-of-the table side Yorkshire Jets.

The winless Jets were all square with their high-flying opponents with five minutes to play, only for Thunder to pull clear with time running out.

Team Bath are in third place after recording a convincing 60-44 win over Loughborough Lightning on Friday, while Celtic Dragons also earned a 53-45 victory over Team Northumbria.

The Dragons' second win of the campaign lifted them above Northumbria into sixth place in the table.

Mavericks can open up a lead at the top of the table on Monday if they can win their home match against the Dragons.
