Rockets Recent Form

We will be looking to make it three straight wins at home tomorrow evening after back-to-back home successes against Charnwood Riders and Bristol Hurricanes.

Nechells Wellbeing Centre has become something of a fortress for our Men’s First Team in recent times, with our last defeat coming back on the 16th October against Nottingham Trent University Hoods.

We will once again need your incredible support to help give us the edge once again tomorrow!

The Opposition

Both sides come into the game with a .500 record for the season, with the Arrows having played two less games at 3-3 for the season.

They played just twice in November, falling to a 96-80 defeat away at Nottingham Trent University Hoods to start the month, despite McIntosh top scoring for the game with an impressive 33-point display.

They would go on to edge Charnwood Riders 78-74 in their most recent game of the season on 20th November. We also overcame Charnwood by a four-point margin for our first home win of the season so tomorrow promises to be a close game between two competitive sides.
