  1. BBL preview: Cheshire Phoenix v Bristol Flyers

    Bristol Flyers will secure a play-off spot if they win at Cheshire Phoenix on Friday night.

    Ninth place Cheshire are six points back from Bristol in eighth, and their own slim play-off hopes will be ended if they lose tonight.

    Brandon Boggs, regarded as one of the league's most entertaining players, is the Flyers' biggest threat while Cheshire's powerful duo of CJ Gettys and Raheem-May Thompson will aim to test the Bristol defence.
