Top Four showdown headlines Round 15

With just four rounds remaining until we reach the finals weekend of the 2017 Vitality Netball Superleague, the scramble for qualification is hotter than ever!

The only team to confirm their place in Manchester so far is Manchester Thunder but this could all change in Round 15.

All ten teams take to the court on Monday evening with results from each game having a major impact on the hopes of top four qualification.

Team Bath travel to Team Northumbria on a fantastic roll. Having beaten Wasps Netball at home in Round 14, they now find themselves outside of the Final Four places on goal average only.

The team currently occupying that vital fourth spot, Surrey Storm, head to Celtic Dragons with both fixtures set for a 7pm centre-pass.

If either of those sides slip-up, the winners of the Manchester Thunder and Wasps clash will confirm their qualification for June’s showpiece weekend.

The two teams are locked together on 33 points in the table, sitting in third and second place respectively.

Also hoping for one of the teams above to falter will be Sirens. The Scottish side host Severn Stars sitting six points off the top four with 12 points left up for grabs.

A victory for the hosts will also signal an end for the small Final Four hopes of Stars.

Another side knowing it is win or bust for them in Round 15 is Hertfordshire Mavericks. They head to Loughborough hoping to spring a shock in a match to be shown LIVE on Sky Sports.

If they succumb to defeat, a win for either Storm or Bath would eliminate them from the top four chase. Lightning will be determined to secure their place at the top of the regular season table.
