Former Breakers guard Cedric Jackson is looking forward to his match up with the man who's taken his position at the franchise.

Jackson will come up against new Breakers import Ben Woodside when he lines up for Melbourne United in the NBL season opener on Friday.

Jackson held the Breakers shooting guard role for four seasons and says though Woodside isn't the most flashy he'll provide a lot of challenges.

He says he saw a bit of Woodside at the recent pre season tournament in Brisbane but other than that doesn't know much but expects the Breakers to enhance his game.
