Caledonia Pride enter the weekend on a high, having produced a thrilling display last time out to overcome Cardiff Met Archers in overtime in front of a raucous home crowd.
For Scottish international Robyn Lewis the Pride crowd have been a constant sixth man for the team.
“It’s really great for us to play at home and see how much the game is growing here in Scotland. We love it and it definitely adds an extra something to our performance.
“We now need to start converting that advantage into Championship victories.
“We definitely weren’t as consistent as we would have liked to have been over the first half of the season.
“A lot of our big wins have come in the Cup so it’s important we can start to secure some league wins and climb as high in the table as possible.”
Team Northumbria travel to Edinburgh full of momentum and with a chip on their shoulder, having been denied a place in the Cup Final by the Scottish franchise.

“Containing Alison Gorrell will be really important. She’s a vital piece for Northumbria and has recently enjoying a great run of form,” noted Lewis.
“If we can contain her off the dribble and limit her points we will be in good shape.
“Likewise, we must keep Hannah Shaw and Kara Bonenberger off the glass and deny their three-point shooters open looks.”
