TADEA Lions are tied on 12pts with Wirral and both teams are wrestling for 8th place or higher. Hornets are one of the most physical teams in the league and many teams have fallen victim to their aggressive style of basketball. Lions are determined not to allow this to happen to them. Wirral beat the Lions in Cheshire before Christmas however Middlesbrough were not at their best. On the back of three big wins last weekend, TADEA Lions are aiming to continue their good run and put some breathing space between themselves and the bottom feeders.


Be sure not to miss what is billed as a ‘battle’ between the two sides.
