CHESTER Jets expect to be at full-strength for their only match of the weekend - Sunday's visit to Scottish Rocks.
Jaz Cowan and James Hamilton have had spells out of the team in recent weeks, but Cowan returned last weekend and veteran Hamilton should be available on Sunday despite missing last Saturday's defeat to Newcastle.
Jets head coach Mike Burton said: 'It's a big game for us.
'They are a tough team, but I'm looking forward to it. We beat them the first time we played them, but they won the other two games. Rob Yanders and Julius Joseph are their key players, but if we can beat them we have a chance of moving level with London United.'
With three wins from their last four matches, Jets have climbed from ninth place in the BBL Championship table up to the eighth and final play-off position.
Rocks coach Thorsten Leibenath knows that Jets are now a stronger outfit than they were before Christmas.
He said: 'They will be similar to Leicester in that they have a small roster, but they shoot the ball very well and have some talented shooters.
'They are under no pressure as no one expects anything from them. Jaz Cowan is the league's leading scorer and a very talented player, while their new guy, Louis McCullough, is good at attacking the basket and can also shoot the ball from outside.'
Sunday's game will be the third BBL Championship meeting between the two teams this season, with the sides level on a home win each. The first game came in early October saw Jets snatch an 89-86 victory with Alto Virgil leading all scorers with 29 points.
The second meeting proved to be much more one-sided as Rocks romped to a 103-71 home win. A buzzer-beating three from Cowan gave Jets a one-point lead at half-time, but Rocks had an early 9-0 run in the second half and never looked back.
The two sides also clashed in the BBL Cup quarter-final at Braehead, with Rocks recording a hard-fought 84-79 success.
