Rohndell Goodwin believes a renewed defensive intensity will help see off the Glasgow Rocks on Friday night.
Flyers held the London Lions to just to just 31% from the field in last weekend’s 81-64 victory, but Goodwin is expecting the Rocks to be boosted by a hostile atmosphere in front of the BBC Sport cameras at the Emirates Arena.
"They’re going to be at home, so we’re expecting them to come in with a lot of energy,” he told Bristol Flyers TV.
"They’re going to have their crowd behind them so we’ve got to match their tempo and control the game.
"We need to dictate the game with our ball pressure and we can’t be stopped if we do that.
Flyers ran out 74-71 winners when the two teams met at the WISE Arena in November, but Goodwin is well aware of the threats posted by their latest addition and former NCAA title winner, Nate Britt.
"We’ve been doing the scout over the last few days and we know they have a good point guard in Nate Britt,” Goodwin explained.
"Their bigs are also pretty good too so we’ve just got to play our game which is Bristol Flyers basketball.
"We have a goal of being in the top four and we can still do that, we’ve just got to keep doing what we’ve been doing in practice and the sky is the limit for Bristol Flyers.”
Friday’s game against Glasgow Rocks will be available to watch for FREE worldwide on the BBC Sport website at 7.30pm (GMT).
One of the standout results of the 2018/19 campaign was undoubtedly a 3-2 win over the Blades at Bramall Lane and supporters can watch the game back in its entirety this Monday evening (March 30th).
