Worcester wheelchair basketball team look to make statement before play-offs

Worcester Editorial 26th Apr, 2024   0

WORCESTER Wolves wheelchair basketball club will be looking to end their regular season on a high when they take on Cardiff Met Archers tomorrow (Saturday).

The Wolves will tip-off against Cardiff at 2pm at the University of Worcester Arena, with a win potentially seeing them leapfrog the visitors into third place in the final Women’s Premier League standings.

This is Worcester’s final game before next month’s playoffs, which take place at the University of Essex and will see Lucas Warburton’s side once again face the Archers.

Worcester secured their only win of the season against Cardiff, beating them 58-47 in January.

Cardiff have also tasted victory against Wolves this season, and Worcester head coach Lucas Warburton said winning the ‘series decider’ would give his side a psychological boost heading into the playoffs.

He added: “We’ve got to make sure we are pulling together as a team and focus on this final game of the regular season.

“We need to make sure we are firing on all cylinders, on both ends of the floor.

“We will be playing Cardiff, and no matter how the final game of the season goes, both teams will be focussing on getting that win and securing third place.

“That means we know the playoff game will be the toughest game against Cardiff we’ve had this season, and we need to make sure we are fully prepared for it.”

Worcester are one of just four professional wheelchair basketball teams in the country.
