Bath continue Final Four charge against Wasps in Round 14

The Rounds are flying by in the 2017 Vitality Netball Superleague and the Sky Sports cameras will be on hand to catch a pivotal clash between Team Bath and Wasps Netball on Monday evening.

Three wins in a row have propelled Bath towards the edge of qualification for Finals weekend and they now sit just three points off Surrey Storm who occupy fourth spot.

In Wasps they face a formidable opponent who have their sights set on the top of the regular season table. A win over Loughborough earlier this week saw their winning streak stretch to six.

If they can make it seven away from home LIVE on Sky Sports Mix, they will confirm their place at the Final Four in Manchester on June 10th and 11th.

Another side looking to rubber stamp their place at Final Four will be Loughborough Lightning.

Despite slipping to a first defeat of the season in Round 13, an away win at Surrey Storm will confirm that they will head to the semi-finals.

However, Storm will be desperately fighting for their own Superleague future in Guildford on Saturday evening as they look to hold off the charge from Bath and continue their own journey to Manchester.

Manchester Thunder are the final team currently occupying a top four place and they face a tricky away trip to Severn Stars in Round 14.

Anything but a win for Stars will eliminate them from the Final Four chase and they will be giving it their all to upset their visitors and keep alive their slim semi-final hopes.

Two teams who are also aware that anything but a win will practically end their Final Four ambitions are Hertfordshire Mavericks and Sirens.

The two meet on Saturday evening knowing that they must secure three points to have a chance of challenging for a place at Finals weekend.

Kicking off the action on Friday night are the two sides currently sitting at the foot of the Superleague table.

Team Northumbria welcome Celtic Dragons knowing that a win will put some daylight between themselves and their Welsh opponents in the league standings.

Dragons will be desperate to avoid the wooden spoon and will see this as a chance to build some momentum towards the end of the season.
