IT'S been a quite incredible season for Worcester Wolves and it hasn't finished yet.

We've already taken one of our opportunities by winning the BBL Trophy and now we have the chance for success in the play-offs.

We face Sheffield Sharks in the semi-finals, a team who we've beaten over two legs in a competition already this year to get to a final.

I don't see any reason why we can't do it again. I think we've been one of the better teams all season and the top four teams have got through to the semi-finals.

For us top get to the final, especially at Wembley Arena, would be immense. It's a very special thing to get to and even more special to win it. I've been there a few times, won it once, and hopefully I can do it again with this team.

We always thought it was going to be Sheffield in the last four, we thought we'd get through London because we've done a great job against them all season.

We have had some fantastic battles with Sheffield and this will be another one. I think it's an even match but we will look to take heart from what we did in the Trophy semi-finals.

In both those legs we had them down by 20 points and really should have put them away. But they're a good team and keep coming, they've got a lot of strength in depth and they grind you down.

We haven't played a fantastic game against them yet, we've played well in spurts and then switched off but we really have to try to focus for 40 minutes.

Zaire Taylor comes into the game having been named as BBL player of the year with Will Creekmore runner-up.

Zaire's had an absolutely outstanding year and I knew that he was a very special player when I signed him.

He's one of those guards who makes everybody around him look good, he makes everybody better. It's not only his scoring, it's the way he feeds the players at the right time so they can do what they do best. He's also a fantastic defensive player so it's really well deserved..

Will was no too far behind but Zaire would edge it just because he's had to do so many other things for the team.

I think it's credit to our recruitment this year that we've had the top two players in the league.

Although it took a long time to get the deals done, we kept the faith because I knew they would do very well in the system we run here.

Zaire was close to getting MVP last year at Leicester and Will was another who wanted to win games. He plays and trains hard and credit to him for coming a gallant runner-up.
