London Towers' coach, Kevin Cadle, will write off this season as "a personal failure" if his team are knocked out of the European Cup tonight, even if they go on to win all the domestic competitions.

London must finish in their European Cup group's top four to repeat last season's feat of reaching the last 32. Cadle said: "If we don't make it, then the season will be a failure for me, whatever happened in England."

Towers' fate hangs on a thread against Stefanel in Milan after losing five of their previous six games, three at home.

Although their European campaign has been disrupted by injury, particularly affecting American James Hamilton, a full-strength London capitulated dismally by 78-69 at home to Israelis Hapoel Eilat at Wembley last week.
