The Opposition

Our hosts have only played one game this season, in which they secured a 90-83 win over Bristol Academy Flyers away from home.

The Flyers went on to win their next game by 16 points against Charnwood Riders, which may give Coach Douglas’ side some indication of the strength of this Northamptonshire outfit.

The Rockets, meanwhile, come into the game on the back of last Saturday’s 85-78 home defeat against Nottingham Trent Hoods.

However, we are undefeated on the road so far this season, securing victories at both Worcester Wolves in the cup and University of Chester in the league.
