READING Rockets (2-1) will be looking to make it three wins on the spin this Sunday when they welcome Nottingham Hoods (0-3) to Rivermead Leisure Complex (5pm).

Rockets were victorious for the second time in a week after ending Loughborough Riders' (2-1) perfect start to their NBL Division One campaign with a 93-70 victory.

Rockets Head Coach Alan Keane was pleased to see his team chalk up win number two, but feels they can offer more in certain aspects of the game. The Irishman said: “I was really pleased with many parts from last weekend, including our opening quarter, when we really committed to what we had agreed prior to the game.

"But what concerned me was our performance in the second quarter, which was almost the opposite to how we had started so that is something for us to look at and address. Overall, it was a good performance for us against one of the league's most consistent performers in the last three years.”

He continued: “This weekend we welcome Nottingham to Reading and although they are yet to win, they are one of the toughest teams in the division. Last season we had two really good battles with them and their youth and experience really make them a threat.

“We will continue with our development and preparations this week and look to build on the two acceptable performances we have delivered so far this season.

"What is great for us is we will be back in front of our home fans who were awesome in our first home game of the season last weekend."

Rockets go into Sunday’s contest with a fully-fit squad to select from after David Chive made his return following a two-week absence.

All 12 of Keane’s group had playing time last weekend with big performances from American duo Nick Richards and AJ Carr, the pair combining for 56 points in their teams 23-point victory.

Rockets are yet to lose to Nottingham having beaten them twice last season, most recently in March when they recorded an 88-76 victory.
