Match Preview: City of Birmingham Rockets Women Looking For Back-To-Back Wins Ahead of Tees Valley Clash

Our Women’s First Team go up against Tees Valley Mohawks this Saturday as we look for our second win of the season after our last-minute win over Derbyshire Diamonds last time out.

Coach Peter Mintoft will be optimistic that we can beat a side who beat us by 15 points back in October after an excellent team performance two weeks ago saw us earn a well-deserved victory.

The team will also be boosted by the return of Antoinette Torgbi after missing our win at Diamonds, with Coach Mintoft being able to field a near full-strength team.

The Opposition

Tees Valley Mohawks have endured a season similar to us, with just one win all season until last weekend’s victory against Team Birmingham Elite.

Mohawks were able to beat out cross-city rivals at the Factory by ten points and will be on the hunt for back-to-back away wins.

A victory for them today would move them four points off the bottom of the table and give them hopes of a positive end to the campaign.
