WORCESTER Wolves are improving all the time and I believe there is plenty more to come.

Although I know we can play much better, we have won seven out of eight games in the British Basketball League so we must be doing something right.

The team have been getting better with every game and are closing matches out. Our defence has been improving as well so I am pleased with the direction we're going in.

As a coach you strive for perfection and you want to perform well and entertain at the same time but the main aim is to make sure you get those wins.

We added two more to our tally with victories over Manchester Giants and Surrey United over the weekend.

It was our first double header of the season I didn't really know how the guys were going to respond so I was really pleased.

Both teams have caused us problems in the past and could potentially have been banana skins but I thought we came through really well.

We played some great basketball for the most part and, although we allowed both sides to come back at us due to a few lapses, we showed great composure to stay in control and close the games out very well.

It was frustrating that we let Manchester back in after being 18 points up at the University Arena but we are capable of building a lead like that.

Basketball is a game of runs so you expect teams to have a good spell at some stage. It's how you manage that and we didn't manage it very well on Friday but, even though they took the lead, I still felt we had enough to win the game.

The Surrey match on Saturday was a little bit more comfortable but it was similar in that we threatened to blow the game wide open but they came back at us.

It was a bit topsy-turvy but when it counted we had some great defensive stops and fine plays offensively.

It would be nice to get these teams done and dusted and make life easier for ourselves but they make for exciting games as long as you're on the winning side of them.

We're still working to make sure that we're concentrating in games for longer periods rather than 30 or 35 minutes. We need that 40 minutes of concentration which is always something coaches are striving for.

With Alex Owumi top-scoring with 25 points against Manchester and Remi Dibo leading the way with 21 against Surrey, the points are being shared around, too.

I think we've got a few guys who can all finish as top scorer on any given night so that certainly helps.

Now we head to Sheffield Sharks tomorrow night (7.30pm) for our first meeting of the season and we can go there with confidence.
