IT could be a long season for Worcester Wolves if we don't start matches better.

Although we are doing well in the league, we have been giving ourselves a lot to do to get back into games.

We do a lot of work on looking at the opposition but for some reason we have been starting slowly and that saps your energy.

However, we have the knack of not panicking and getting back to what we've discussed and how we want to play, which has then got us back into games.

While we are getting better at being more focused for longer periods of time, it's still not enough. The league is that close, when we come up against some of the sides in and around us, there could be long evenings for us if we start slowly.

I feel I've been wasting some time-outs unnecessarily because the players haven't been doing what I've asked them to do early on.

But we have been able to get back on track and all we can do is keep pointing out these little errors that we're making and hopefully it will sink in and we can keep on improving as the season goes on.

Bristol Flyers, who we host tomorrow, got the better of us earlier this month when we started slowly and we will need to do better this time.

It also didn't look like we would win at Sheffield Sharks last Friday after the first quarter but in the end in was a great win.

The game plan was thrown out of the window straight away and we found ourselves 16 points down so I was really disappointed in that.

Then it was a matter of me ringing the changes to find some players who were going to defend before we could get back in the game.

Fortunately, we found that combination and got back in the game and took a healthy lead only for Sheffield to come back.

For those watching, it was an exciting game because it was nip and tuck right to the end and Chavis Holmes scored with 0.9 seconds left to win.

That's what good teams do, you find a way to win and I think in the end we did a great job in doing that.

If anybody saw the defensive block Chavis made, I don't think you'll see a better one all season because of the magnitude of the situation.

It took a lot of courage and for him to block the shot the way he did and then have the presence of mind to get down the other end of the court, get an offensive rebound off Jamal Williams' miss and lay the ball in was fantastic. He knew we needed to get the score and he did a great job.
