Edinburgh Jets make the difficult trip to Aberdeen tomorrow seeking to protect their unbeaten league record in the Schelde Sports Scottish Volleyball League against Bon Accord.
Martyn Johnstone tasted defeat for the first time as player-coach last weekend when Jets were upset by South Ayrshire in the John Syer Trophy.
He will be hoping for an instant reaction against a Bon Accord side who have title ambitions themselves.
No Aberdeen team has ever won the league but how they measure up to Jets will go a long way to determining what sort of challenge they can mount. Bon Accord handed City of Edinburgh their first defeat last weekend in the John Syer Trophy so it will be no easy task for Jets. It could prove a pivotal day in the division with City of Edinburgh, in something of a transitional year but who have dropped one set in the league so far, are at home to third-placed Glasgow Mets, who have lost only once.
In the women’s first division, champions City of Edinburgh – the only unbeaten team in the top flight – host Edinburgh Jets.
Edinburgh Jets II, who have still to win a set in the league, travel to Aberdonia, who have also struggled to make an impact this season.
