Clark Eriksson Fury Mens side will look to make it three wins out of three this season against the Glasgow Rocks national league side and take a further step towards back to back League titles at the Mariner tomorrow.

With 11 wins already in the league and no losses and a Scottish Cup final place this season, the Falkirk-based side know wins in their opening four league games of 2014 will almost guarantee they remain Scottish Champions.

These matches against teams in the lower half of the league, however, will be treated with as much importance as their final three against potentially stronger opposition.

The Rocks were Fury’s last opposition in 2013 with a Scottish Cup semi-final success.

While Jonny Bunyan, Fury’s starting point guard and also Rocks pro British League team player has been their top scorer and stand out player again this season there is little doubt this has been a truly team effort for Fury to remain undefeated.

Defence has been where Fury have shown that experience means so much – holding teams to an average of under 58 points per game and allowing the Rocks only 37 in that semi-final match up.

The Falkirk side’s potent offence has averaged 83 points per game in league and cup matches with former pro Rocks players Scott Russell, Keith Bunyan, Martin Malnieks, Roni Gordon and Stuart McKay emphasizing that point.

The ‘Euro Factor’ and Fury’s strong squad will also be keys in the 2014 part of the 13-14 campaigns.

Spectators are welcome as usual on Friday at the Mariner from 7.40 p.m. on for an 8p.m. tip.
