PREVIEW: Hannah Reid determined to get one over her old team as Wasps Netball prepare to face Surrey

NETBALL: HANNAH Reid says Wasps Netball will be doing everything they can to win when they host her former team on Monday night.

Wasps Netball lock horns with current Superleague champions Surrey Storm at the Ricoh Arena in a highly anticipated Vitality Netball Superleague clash on Monday (May 22) at 8pm.

Storm arrive in Coventry needing three points to stay in pole position for the Final Four.

Wasps came out on top the first time the two teams met, earning a 51-58 victory in the reverse fixture.

The win sparked a seven game winning streak for the team and marked a turning point in Wasps’ season.

Storm have endured a tough run of form of late, winning just one of their last three and will meet a Wasps side looking for their fifth consecutive home win.

Wasps have all-but secured their Final Four spot.

The chasing pack will need to win all their games, require Wasps lose their final three, and a 100 goal swing difference to take place for the team to miss out.

Goal defence Hannah Reid said: “Storm is going to be a really tough game for us, they have absolutely everything to play for and will of course come to the Ricoh Arena knowing they need to win.

“Josie Huckle and I will have our work cut out in defence.

“Megan Craig is 6ft 7ins tall, she’s a target for them and can be really lethal on form.

“They have great supporting players too, Katie Harris and Rhea Dixon are both goal attacks we can’t afford to underestimate.

“It should be a great game with a really great atmosphere. Storm have got some really vocal supporters but I know we’ll have all the Wasps fans behind us as well.”

Tamsin Greenway, Wasps director of netball, added: “We now have the opportunity to use these next few games to work hard on some of the things we need to improve on.

“We’re getting ready for the Finals now and we’ll hope to keep getting better in the lead-up to that weekend.”
