After winning away at Newcastle last weekend, Plymouth coach Paul James is looking to bag another major scalp when the Raiders take on the BBL champions at the Morningside Arena on Saturday.
“The expectation is to go there and, first and foremost, compete,” he told BBC Sport. “As we did at Newcastle, we plan to be in the game with about two minutes to go and give ourselves a shot at winning.”
James took over as Plymouth coach last summer after coaching the Worcester Wolves.
“There’s so much potential here in Plymouth,” he said. “They have a great fan base, great crowds, great sponsors. I don't see why we can't be a top three team on a regular basis.”
“Over the years Plymouth teams haven't done particularly well on the road and that is a culture I'm trying to change.
"When I came here I brought a few players with a bit of grit about them,” said James. “What also has helped was bringing my assistant coach [Danny Magee] down from. He fully understands how I want to do things.”
Plymouth are now on course to reach the BBL Play-offs for the first time in six seasons.
