Kilsyth enter the match on their first losing streak of the Season having lost back to back games to Dandenong and Nunawading over the past two weeks..
The Swinburne Cobras (12-8) remain in second place in the East despite the 81-68 loss to the Spectres but have Brisbane and Knox closing in on a top two spot.
Frankston (7-13) were able to defeat Kilsyth 97-95 in overtime in Round 9 and have won four of seven games since. Kilsyth remain in strong contention for the Championship but must overcome the Blues and end their losing streak to consolidate their top two position.
Fernandez Lockett, Matt O’Hea and Ryan Bathie have all been below their best in the last two weeks and will need to be effective at both ends of the floor against Frankston.
The Blues will get the majority of their scoring from Rob Kampman (19.2ppg, 7.8rpg), Chaz Briggs (15.3ppg, 10.7rpg) and Andrew Harms (14.9ppg) but Kilsyth should not overlook Mitch Chapman.
