Kilsyth - Frankston
Match of the 15th round of the Australian SEABL between 6th placed Kilsyth from the East and 6th placed Frankston from the South in a game both teams have to win to stay in playoff contention.
With 3 wins in a row until the last weekend Kilsyth stabilized themselves and even looked like they could compete for the playoffs with their new point guard Dillon but his injury destroyed all hopes for the hosts who are once again facing a serious problem with almost a non-existing backcourt as they did earlier into the season when their main and starting play Kirksey got injured. However, they are playing a team this round which is dealing with b2b fatigue and behind them is also a tough OT game with Bendigo so we are convinced they won´t surpass this margin with a team whose roster is once again devastated.
Probable starting lineup: Naqqash, Patton, Odigie, MacMillan, Ursich
After the coaching change Frankston is playing much better but they are still struggling with short rotation because they don´t own a long enough roster to cope with b2b weekends. They immediately traveled to Kilsyth after their yesterday´s match with Bendigo and it took them OT to win that game so with the problems which are troubling the hosts this match shouldn´t be nearly as fast as the last one was for Frankston. Guest also have to win to stay in playoff contention while this game is also the final hope for the hosts to stay alive in the playoff race.
Probable starting lineup: Dyson, Francis, Buss, Smith-Milner, Lewis
Kilsyth - Frankston TIP
Injury problems this season aren´t stopping for Kilsyth who after losing their starting play Kirksey lost his substitution Dillon who brought in some life to his team who won 3 in a row but last weekend they were defeated twice vs Tasmania and Geelong and without a backcourt they can hardly hope for something but they are playing a team with short bench and which faces a b2b challenge this weekend after playing a very tough OT game with the title defenders Bendigo and them immediately travelled to Kilsyth for this game. We tip total under.
