Twins Peter and Paul Deppisch stage a shoot-out at Wembley tomorrow when the London Towers try to bounce back against the Manchester Giants following their midweek defeat in the European Cup, writes Duncan Hooper.

The Giants this week signed Peter who, like Paul, is 6ft 6in and also a long-range three-point specialist shooter.

Paul totalled 16 three-pointers in London's two wins in the Budweiser League last weekend. But he found Verona's defence a stiffer proposition in Italy in midweek and scored just once from 10 attempts as London lost 78-48 in their opening Cup game.

Steve McGlothin brings Derby Storm's North American complement to five tonight when he makes his debut against Hemel and Watford Royals alongside Rod Gregwoire, Jimmy Ratliff, Dion Harper and Canadian Curtis Robinson.

London Leopards are waiting for work permit clearance on their fourth American, Tim Davies, for tomorrow's game against Newcastle Comets who include the ex-Leopards, Greg Modzelewski and Chris Fite.
