Rockets’ Recent Form

After a strong November which saw us record back-to-back victories against Bristol Academy Flyers and Bristol Hurricanes, successive defeats against Encon Derbyshire Arrows and Myerscough Academy have stunted our ascent up the table.

With a host players and staff missing through injury in recent weeks, Rockets will be hoping to put in an improved display tomorrow evening.

The Opposition

Our hosts are yet to record a victory this month, falling to successive defeats against Charnwood Riders and Manchester Magic.

Their last home victory came against University of Chester in a dramatic 81-75 overtime win back on 13th November.
