Chester Jets, the unlikely joint leaders of the Budweiser League at Christmas, will go clear at the top of the table over the new year period providing they beat the Worthing Bears tonight and the Sheffield Sharks lose against their cup final opponents, the London Leopards, tomorrow.

The Jets have finished in the league's bottom three for the past three seasons but this season they have won 10 out of 15 games and are a home banker against struggling Worthing Bears tonight. Sheffield beat the Leopards, 104-100, at the London Arena last month in a controversial clash when nine players were fouled out of the match.

London Towers, the defending league champions in a three-way tie at the top, have a free weekend.
