Bullets set sights on second spot.

Byline: Alan Thomas

Buoyed by the success of their European exploits, Birmingham Bullets this weekend turn their attention back to domestic action with a British Basketball League double header.

Bullets face London Towers at Aston Villa Leisure Centre tonight then visit Milton Keynes Lions tomorrow in a quest for important late-season Southern Conference points.

Lance Randall's side is already assured of a place in the BBL knockout stage but there is still plenty to play for in the remaining games. The higher they finish in the Southern Conference, the better Bullets' seeding will be in the play-offs draw.

'Our aim is to finish second and we can ill-afford any slip-ups,' said Randall.

Randall believes his squad has only positive vibes to take forward from their inaugural North European Basketball League campaign which will resume next month with a final four tussle with Ukrainian side Odessa.

'I am extremely pleased with the way we played in our host round of the NEBL,' said the coach. 'I thought our guys played with great determination.'
