PERTH will look to climb out of last place when they travel to Mandurah to take on Peel Thunder on Saturday.

A resounding 99-point loss to Claremont last weekend meant that the Demons slipped to bottom of the ladder, behind East Fremantle on percentage.

Peel are fresh from a bye in the last round and despite losing their last two matches, they sit at third on the ladder.

The action will begin at Rushton Park at 9am for the Colts match while Reserves play at 11.30am and the League match is at 2.15pm.

SBL

THE Perth Redbacks’ season will go on the line in the Men’s and Women’s SBL, with or do or die quarter-final games on Saturday.

In the Women’s SBL, the Redbacks will take on Mandurah at Belmont Oasis from 7pm needing to win after the Magic claimed game one.

If the Redbacks can win then they will take on the Magic in a deciding game three at the Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre on Sunday from 12pm.

In the Men’s SBL, Perth face a tough task to keep their season alive with game two of their series against the South West Slammers taking place at the Eaton Recreation Centre from 7pm.

The Slammers were able to beat the Redbacks by three points in game one at the Belmont Oasis.

A series deciding game three would take place back on home turf for the Redbacks if they claimed victory in game two.
