I BELIEVE there is more to come from Worcester Wolves if we can keep our focus for the duration of games.

It is fantastic for fans to see a close game, as was the case with last Friday’s 86-85 victory over Plymouth Raiders, but, as a coach, you want to see games out properly and focus until the bitter end.

We’re certainly going to need to do that much better, moving into the British Basketball League play-offs.

We have shown that if we don’t concentrate and focus until the last whistle we can give teams a chance and that’s what happened against Plymouth.

They had a shot to steal it at the end and that’s a situation we’ve been in a few times this season when we’ve had the game won and contrived to give the opposition a chance to take it instead.

We have the ability and talent to win games more comfortably and still make it exciting without it being such a nail-biter.

I was a little bit disappointed with the way we finished against Plymouth – it was one of those games when we put our backs against the wall and managed to find a way to win it in the end.

That’s good because it could all be so different this season had we lost more of those close games than we’ve won.

Thankfully, we’ve triumphed in more than we’ve lost and any win is a good one.

Yes, we could have done it a bit more comfortably but that’s something we have to work on.

We’re still second in the table and putting as much pressure as we can on those in and around us, whether it’s Newcastle Eagles, Leicester Riders or Cheshire Phoenix.

I think Cheshire are still in with a shout for second but Leicester and ourselves are in pole position.

We are 1-0 up on them in the league and while it would be great to win the next two against them, if we could get one it would give us the head-to-head which would be good.

I am really looking forward to that series of games as we’re going to end up playing them twice in three days next month now the away game on March 21 has been switched to Tuesday, April 14, due to Leicester’s involvement in the BBL Trophy final.

They are going to be two crucial games when they come around.

Until then, we are just going to try to win every game we’ve got — we’re not going to look at placings or whom we might end up facing in the play-offs.

Winning is a habit, whether it’s by one point or more, and we’d feel a lot worse for losing games by a point having come so close.

We want to try to win games more comfortably than we are doing at the moment and we’re working really hard in training to make that happen.
