Brisbane Heat have struggled over recent weeks and are only two points above Adelaide Strikers in 8th place. However, they will certainly view this fixture as winnable.
Adelaide Strikers beat Hobart Hurricanes two games ago to signal the start of a march up the table. However, they were poor again against Melbourne Stars and look very low on confidence.
