WARRIORS director of rugby Alan Solomons has asked for supporters to “keep the faith” and emphasised the importance of sticking with the side during this losing run.

Worcester are without a league win this calendar year and frustrations grew further among fans following a fifth straight Gallagher Premiership defeat at Leicester Tigers on Saturday.

Four of those matches were decided by six points or less and it has become an unwanted trend that Warriors cannot get over the line.

Solomons admits he understands where fans are coming from but implores them to see things in perspective.

“I think it’s perfectly understandable that the fans get frustrated,” he said.

“Everyone wants to win but I think they’ve got to see it in perspective.

“Last season, literally in the last minutes of games, Ted Hill scored against Leicester to win, Duncan Weir kicks the penalty against Saracens and we score in the corner to win against Bath at Sixways in the last minute too.

“Sometimes it just goes against you but the lads are putting it in and we’re that close to winning and what is important is that support.

“My message to them is to keep the faith and come out to Sixways and support the boys because it’s about supporting them through thick and thin and they play a big role in helping us in games.”

Warriors return to Sixways this week for some ‘Friday night lights’ action against Northampton Saints (7.45pm).

Solomons is enjoying the prospect of playing at home again and asks the Warriors faithful to get them across the line.

“If we have a big crowd at Sixways that lifts the players and we need that,” he added.

“It’s important as their support is absolutely vital.

“My message to them is to see it in perspective and see it in context, see that the team is that close.

“Come out and support us, the boys are giving everything, your support can get us across the line."

Whilst the crowd and players can do their bit, Solomons knows he and his coaches also have a role to play in getting the best out of the team.

“First and foremost the coaches concentrate on the players,” Solomons continued.

“It is frustrating because there may be a situation where we have a two-on-one and it’s simple to finish and it doesn’t happen or there is a silly penalty given away, of course there is frustration for us as coaches.

“But you’re dealing with human beings and they are going to make mistakes and I think that all the coaches are together in wanting the best for the players and the best for the team and to work with them and to stick to our processes.

“We will get over the line.”
