COACH David Colclough says Swindon Shock have been caught out in recent weeks after having two games postponed.

After suffering their heaviest defeat of the season to London All Stars towards the end of January, Shock have seen their subsequent fixtures with Oxford Brookes University and Team Solent Kestrels II called off.

The New College side are currently second from bottom in the National League Division Three South standings, making the enforced break all the more frustrating for Colclough.

“We have had a bit of a whirlwind with games being called off. It has been chaos,” he said.

“Our game with Oxford was called off because one of their players had a heart attack in the middle of the game.

“They had to abandon that, he had to be resuscitated but I think he is okay now.

“Then Solent got to the final of a cup competition and they didn’t want to have back-to-back games so they postponed it.”

A depleted Shock side were beaten 87-48 in London last time out but with a two-week break to recharge the batteries, Colclough is hoping his side will be at full tilt for the reverse fixture on Saturday.

“The break has allowed us to have a little break and talk through a couple of things,” he said.

“We will have Antonio Wilburn back this weekend and we’ll have Lee Hobbis back and Dom Sajovic too.”
