Wolves will look to snap a three game losing streak when they host Manchester Mystics on Sunday, 3pm tip-off.
It's part of a tough run of games for Lee Ryan's team as they look to clinch a place in the WBBL play-offs, and the Wolves coach knows his side have a difficult and busy time ahead of them: "We have five homes games to make the play-offs" he said. "The schedule is not kind but it’s in our hands and we need to approach this as a mini season to achieve post-season play.
"Manchester is a difficult match up, they have so much experience and quality. We were short handed last time out so I’m looking for a better showing this time round with our full team."
An injury hit Wolves team went down 80-51 when the sides met at the National Basketball Performance Centre a month ago, Loise Rouse leading the Oaklands' scoring with 15 points and six rebounds.
Guard Georgia Jones led the way that day with 17 points, nine assists, six rebounds and three steals and the Great Britain international is having an excellent season for her team coached by her father Jeff, leading Mystics in points per game (16.7), points (5.8), assists (5.9) and steals (2).
Mystics go into the game in sixth spot following their midweek loss to leaders Sevenoaks Suns, and have split their first 16 games, while Wolves are in ninth spot with a 4-11 record.
Greeta Uprus and Amari Carter are averaging 12.5 and 12.2 point per game respectively, while Lauren Milligan leads in rebounds (7.3) and steals (2) with Beth Sarson dishing out a team-high 2.8 assists.
