HISTORY-MAKING Worcester Wolves women face a daunting play-off semi-final at undefeated National League Division Two outfit Nottingham Trent University on Saturday (4pm).

But head coach Ryan Emery says Wolves are “very confident” going into the game as they look to exploit the “chinks in their armour”.

Wolves progressed to the final four for the first time in their history following a thrilling 76-75 victory at London ‘South Bank’ Thunder last weekend.

After falling 10 points behind Worcester fought back to lead at half-time.

Thunder almost snatched victory but Wolves held their nerve.

“Credit to London as they made some pretty big plays but we were able to escape with our lives and get a place in the semi-finals,” Emery said.

“It was great that we were able to get the job done considering we lost by one point at the same stage against Sevenoaks last year.

“The hard work has paid off and the players are really happy.”

Nottingham Trent won all 12 of their league games including two triumphs over Wolves, winning 63-56 at home and 75-71 away.

“Nottingham are a good team,” Emery said.

“They are undefeated but we also know there are chinks in their armour that we will look to exploit.

“We are playing some of our best basketball and it would be a credit to this team if they were able to get through (to the final against either Thames Valley Cavaliers or Derby Trailblazers).

“We are making history already as this is the first time we have got to a semi-final so why stop now?

“I truly believe this team can do it. We are really confident going into this game.”
