SEVERN Stars captain Laura Malcolm has urged her side to “pull together” as they look to end a run of four games without a win when they host Team Northumbria tomorrow night (7.30pm).

Just three points separate Stars from their opponents, who sit one place lower in the table, with Northumbria having inflicted a heavy 61-39 defeat in the reverse fixture at Sport Central last month.

But Malcolm remains hopeful her side can produce a good performance at the University of Worcester Arena in their penultimate home game of the Vitality Netball Superleague season.

She said: “We’re looking to put out a strong performance.

"We only have three games left of the season and two more opportunities to play in front of our home crowd and we want to make sure we have a strong finish to the season.

“This game is very important to us. We’ve had a run of bad performances and can’t let that continue.

“It doesn’t matter who we play and where they sit in the table. We need to focus on our own performance and make sure we play good netball.”

The Stars centre, who spent seven years at Manchester Thunder before joining Stars, believes her side have yet to live up to their full potential in their debut season.

Malcolm added: “Some of our results haven’t always given a fair representation of how well we’ve played.

“This team have so much potential but potential means nothing in the here and now.

"We all need to push ourselves more both physically and mentally and produce a strong performance which we are more than capable of doing.”
