Two sides looking to bounce back from narrow home losses last weekend meet at Kelvin Hall on Sunday evening as Glasgow Rocks host Guildford Heat in the BBL Championship.

Rocks went down to a 89-85 defeat against old rivals Newcastle Eagles on Sunday afternoon, while on the same day Heat saw a six point lead going into the fourth period against Worcester Wolves disappear as they lost 98-93.

Glasgow player-coach Sterling Davis (pictured right) was a disappointed man after the loss against the league-leading Eagles: 'We had a disastrous second quarter. Offensively we just could not put the ball in the basket while also not playing defence. I do credit my guys for their efforts in getting back in the game but unless you win it, it's all in vain. I thought Joe Chapman really hit some big shots for them when they needed them.'

Rocks were without point guard EJ Harrison for a third straight week, while Davis only played limited minutes on his return from injury. The Rocks play-caller is hopeful that he will have a full roster to choose from this week: 'Both EJ and myself are trying to get back to full strength as soon as possible. EJ is feeling better every day and we are taking as that. With my Achilles injury, you have to tread lightly in recovering. It's not something you can risk playing through so I'm gradually trying to work my way back.'

Rocks go into the game in third position in the BBL Championship, while Heat are still looking for their first win of the season, but Davis isn't taking the Surrey side lightly: 'I haven't seen the Heat team with their new additions. I know they have gotten proven BBL players in Mike Copeland (201-F-85, college: N.Carolina) and Shaun Durant. Put that with all the other experience they have retained and they are a good team.

'I think Tayo Ogedengbe is really becoming a solid player in the league and proving more and more consistent every game.

Heat coach Creon Raftopoulos knows his side face a tough game north of the border: 'Sterling has put together a strong team and I believe they the only team to beat the Eagles this year. The little I have seen of them reminds me about our team: they're fast, athletic and have good shooters in their line-up. We got the better of them last season in all three games so I'm sure Sterling will be happy to get one off us.

'Mychal Green has been huge for them picking up the scoring load in the absence of EJ Harrison and we will look to do the best defensive job we can on him. Gareth Murray is improving season after season and game after game. Once just a three point threat, his game has evolved into being an all round player you can count on. I also rate Sterling as one of the best forwards in this league and on his day can be a threat inside and out.

In a display of honesty that could be noted by some top football mangers, Raftopoulos admitted that he made mistakes in his side's loss against Wolves on Sunday: 'I felt we started the game real well and had control going into the fourth quarter but a culmination of bad decisions by myself cost us the victory,' he said. 'I kept Mike Martin [pictured left], Drew Lasker and Martelle McLemore on the bench for too long and lost our eight point lead and then got a technical foul for asking for a three second call that resulted in a four point swing.

'Drew and Martelle were our scoring leaders but we had six players in total score in double figures and fall short of getting our first win.

'For Worcester, Sherrad Prezzie-Blue (180-G-86, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management, college: WentworthTe.), Tommy Freeman and Kauzlaukas made 12 three pointers between shooting a high 46 percent from behind the arc and Richie Gordon made his contribution in the paint with 23 points of his own.'
