Basketball: Ford claim will spur on Riders
Saturday 06 November 1999
The Leicester coach, Jim Darling, hopes the statement will inspire his players who, apart from a National Cup win over non-league Plymouth, have lost all 11 games this season.
Derby are joint top of the Northern Conference after beating Thames Valley and Brighton last weekend, prompting Ford to say: "I think the first half against Thames Valley was the best ever and not just by a Derby team, even if I look back to the Kingston of old." It will register with the former Kingston coach, Kevin Cadle: as a Sky pundit, he wrote off Derby as "no-hopers" pre-season. Ford said: "If we have a bad performance I just start the next practice with Cadle's piece."
