The 2016-17 BBL campaign comes to an end for four teams this weekend. Three already know that, while three teams are battling to extend their seasons.

Six teams have booked their spots in the Play-Offs with two still up for grabs heading into the final round of regular season fixtures.

Bristol Flyers, Plymouth Raiders and Surrey Scorchers. Two will make it, one finishes with disappointment.

The winner of Plymouth-Surrey on Saturday will advance and if Bristol can beat Manchester on the same day, then they will advance with a win over Surrey on the final day with Plymouth taking on Manchester on the road.

“We feel these are two must win games for us and we plan to approach this weekend like it’s the playoffs,” said Flyers’ Aaron Cosby. “We have to do whatever it takes to win.

“It won’t be easy as we expect both Manchester and Surrey to give us their best shot but I’m confident if we play together we will come out on the winning side of both games.”

The league’s top two meet again tonight as Esh Group Eagles Newcastle host Leicester Riders having lost on Wednesday, while this season’s double-winners return home to host Worcester Wolves on Sunday.

Paul James’ Wolves take a 12-game win streak into the final weekend and they take on DBL Sharks Sheffield live on BBC Sport tonight in the battle for third with the Sharks then hosting Newcastle on Sunday.

Glasgow Rocks visit Leeds Force tonight before welcoming London Lions to the Emirates Arena as they can secure a third place finish with two wins on the weekend.

Also, the Lions take on Cheshire Phoenix this evening before the visitors return home to host Leeds on Sunday as they look to sign off the season in style.
