Edinburgh Jets put their unbeaten league record on the line when they face City of Glasgow Ragazzi in Coltness tomorrow.

The volleyball league leaders will need to be firing on all cylinders against a Ragazzi side who know that a defeat would end any lingering title hopes they may have. Ragazzi sit third in the Schelde Sports Scottish League but stretched Jets to five sets the last time they met in the league in October.

But Jets have shown remarkable resilience when it comes to five-set matches this season. After beating Ragazzi 15-12 in the final set, they were also stretched to five sets by Glasgow Mets (winning 17-15 in the fifth) and City of Edinburgh (winning 15-13 in the decider).

If Jets can come through this test, then there will be growing confidence that they can go on and win their first title.

City of Edinburgh, in second place, travel to South Ayrshire just seven days after beating their opponents in straight sets in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

In the women’s first division, champions City of Edinburgh travel to face North Lanarkshire, who are vying for a play-off spot. Edinburgh Jets play Edinburgh Jets II.
