Match Preview: Thunder v London Pulse
Manchester Thunder take on newcomers London Pulse on Monday (4 February) in their third match of the season.
Thunder look ahead to the evening as ample opportunity to move up the Superleague table and keep the momentum high following last week’s impressive victory over Strathclyde Sirens.
The Black and Yellows will be looking to showcase their quality in front of the cameras, as the match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Pulse travel to Manchester following two consecutive defeats at their home venue. The first being a significant defeat to last year’s bottom place Celtic Dragons. The second, a frustrating, but not crushing loss at the hands of Superleague champions Wasps.
This, after they showed such promise in the opening match of the season at Super 10, capitalising on the mistakes of Severn Stars to claw their way back into the game and eventually beat Stars by two goals in an exciting last quarter comeback.
Pulse pose an attacking threat but in the face of Thunder’s defensive duo, Kerry Almond and Emma Dovey, whose presence on court this season has been daunting to say the least, Thunder should feel confident in their quality.
Thunder have displayed composure and confidence in all areas of the court in their first two games of the season and will look ahead to Monday night as an opportunity to maintain that self-assurance, against a team who have proved their potential but are perhaps yet to find their rhythm.
Centre pass is at Belle Vue at 7pm on Monday.
