Chester Jets return to the Granby Halls tonight - 10 days after knocking Leicester out of the League Trophy semi-finals - looking for their sixth successive win against the Riders this season to get their Budweiser League challenge back on track, writes Richard Taylor.

Third-placed Jets lost 88-76 at home to Birmingham Bullets last weekend, but Mike Burton, the Chester coach, said: "Anything can happen in this League, as we saw with Towers last weekend."

London Towers, the defending champions who meet Chester in next Sunday's League trophy final, lost 82-46 at Manchester Giants to record the lowest score by any Budweiser League club this season.

London are at home tomorrow against Thames Valley Tigers as the battle for their title intensifies. Birmingham moved joint top with Sheffield Sharks by beating Manchester in midweek and just six points cover the top six clubs.
