Wolves aim for Rocks revenge

WORCESTER Wolves will be hoping to provide their fans with some Christmas cheer when they take on the Glasgow Rocks tomorrow (Saturday).

Wolves, who are currently fifth in the BBL Championship, go into the game at the University of Worcester (tip-off 7pm) off the back of their best win of the season when they beat reigning champions Newcastle Eagles 88-73 a fortnight ago.

And Wolves will be seeking revenge against the Scottish franchise having lost to them 85-79 at the end of November.

Wolves head coach Paul James said a two week break from action had done his team the world of good.

"The week off has been beneficial," he said.

"It has given us a chance to work on a few things and hopefully this will pay off in the games coming up. The Rocks are a good balanced team of experience and youth. The last time we played them they totally dominated us in all areas, so we have a lot to put right if we want to get the win."
