Esh Group Eagles Newcastle v Bristol Flyers

Details: Friday 17 February, Sport Central, 7:30pm – BBL Championship

Summary: The Eagles bounced back from a crushing Trophy defeat with a convincing home win against Leeds Force last week. Bristol remain in the top eight, but were beaten by Glasgow Rocks last time out and have never beaten Newcastle in the BBL.

Joe Hart, Newcastle Eagles guard – “I think we really needed a performance like we had against Leeds. We had been going away from our brand of basketball.

“We went back to our style on Friday and demonstrated that we are still a really tough team to handle.

“All of the guys are ready to step up when required and we need to take things one game at a time.”

Season record: Eagles 2-0 Flyers
