CHESTER Jets step on to the Northgate Arena court on Sunday bidding to continue their dream start to the British League season.
The Jets roared down the runway last weekend and took off with back-to-back victories at Derby Storm and at home to Manchester Giants, and on Sunday they are bidding for a hat-trick against Leicester Riders.
Head coach Robbie Peers isn't known for getting carried away following any successes, but he could hardly contain his delight with his team's start.
'Our short-term goal was to win both opening matches and I was very pleased with the way we played,' he said. 'In fact, we did a lot better than I expected.'
His new-look team gelled from the start with summer recruits Calvin Davis and John Thomas top-scoring in the respective matches against Derby and Manchester.
'It is difficult to say how the team compares to last year, because other teams are different, but we are certainly quicker and more athletic,' he said.
'We have the potential to take it up a few notches and will have to do that when we meet teams like London Towers, London Leopards and Sheffield Sharks.'
'We will see how good we are when we have a bad spell, which is inevitable.
How we cope with that and bounce back will tell me a lot about the players.'
Jets have no injury problems for Sunday's visit of Leicester Riders (5.30) and Peers has given Pero Cameron the week off to recover from his hectic spell of matches in New Zealand, travelling to Britain and playing last weekend.
'Leicester have a lot of talent and we will have to perform to beat them,' added Peers.
Jets had close to a full house of around 900 fans at the Arena last weekend and Peers was delighted. 'The fans were excellent and we would love it if they came back on Sunday,' he said.
