Sory Kaba currently has the 7th-highest xG (4.9) of any player in the #sldk so far this season, despite scoring just 2 goals for @fcmidtjylland. ๐Ÿ“Š

He has underperformed his xG (scored less than expected) more than any other player. ๐Ÿ“‰

Sources: Nottingham Forest have made a bid to sign FC Cincinnati forward Brenner. Offer was a loan with purchase obligation. Cincy countered. Two days left in transfer window.

Brenner sat out of training today as he hopes to make the move.

Forest are 13th in the Premier League.

Sharks make the final four

Southland Sharks have reached the final four of the NBL play-offs after they thrashed the Otago Nuggets 117-93 .

It was a commanding display from the Sharks, who dominated from the outset and led 32-17 after the first quarter.

The second quarter was even more clear-cut as the hosts took it 39-18 to lead 71-35 at half-time.


Points scorers

Dom Kelman-Poto put on a sparkling display, scoring 25 points and making nine rebounds. Josh Cunningham was also fantastic; he scored 21 points, eight rebounds and nine assists.

The Nuggets fought back well after half-time but the match was dead and buried.


What it means?

The Nuggetsโ€™ top-four hopes are now in doubt after their second defeat in their last three games. They are fifth, two points behind the Auckland Huskies with two games remaining. They must win their final two games and hope for a slip-up to reach the play-offs.

The Sharks have won 12 of their 17 games to seal a place in the final-four.


Giants hammer the Bulls

Elsewhere, Nelson Giants hammered the Franklin Bulls 119-85 โ€“ their first win in four after three consecutive defeats.

They equalled the highest score of the season from any team as five Giants players scored double figures.
