Nottm Vs Lboro Preview

The Green and Whites secured a well deserved victory against the Leicester Tigers in their previous outing and will looking to be build on that performance against the National League One side.

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag said, "We did a lot of good things against the Tigers with the new players giving a good account of themselves in their first appearances.  Our aim for tomorrow's match is to keep doing those good things but to do them better and for longer periods.  There are some areas that we have been working on that we would also like to implement and see how we execute them in a match situation.

"We've made a lot of changes to the starting line-up as we look to give everyone plenty of game time ahead of the season.  It is a very similar squad, with a few guys coming back in after injury.  All of the players will get an opportunity to show what they can do as we build up to the match against Bedford.

"Loughborough will be a good test for us, as they showed last season.  They have a very enthusiastic squad who like to run the ball and will provide a stern test for our defence. "
