With the Cup Final on the horizon, you’d be forgiven for thinking Cheshire Phoenix might want to take it easy until the 28th January. The team, however, have a different approach and, with two important fixtures this weekend, the side are focused on the task in hand.
The side travel to London on Friday before a Cup Final preview in Cheshire on Sunday, where they’ll face Worcester Wolves in the Trophy.
“It’s an interesting time to be playing Worcester with the final just weeks away. It’s a Trophy game and, like every other competition, we want to win,” declared General Manager James Brice.
“We will be doing everything we can to walk away with victory. At the same time, it’s an intriguing conundrum as neither side want to show their full hand before the Cup Final.
“Before that, however, we meet London – a side we’ve beaten twice already.
“That’s great and all, but we know the Lions have made a coaching change and they’ll be keen to use that to build some momentum.
“It will be a challenging weekend for us but we expect to keep winning games. We are in a good position in the league with games in hand so we need to make sure we take advantage of that.”
