Warriors director of rugby Alan Solomons admits his side must be more clinical after slipping to another Premiership defeat at home to Northampton Saints.

Worcester had a number of opportunities in the game but a lack of a clinical edge meant the home side could not turn good build-up play into points.

The hosts created more chances than their opposition but Saints took theirs and ultimately, that was the difference between the two teams.

Solomons expressed that his side must improve their finishing if they are to find a way to turn close defeats into wins.

"All the games have been close,” he said.

“It's frustrating because we are that close. But we must stick to our processes and we will turn the corner. 

"We created far more opportunities than they did, but we just didn't close ours out. Those margins are what it takes at this level and they took theirs and we didn't. 

“The best way to make sure we improve that facet of the game is in practice and we as coaches will get onto them about it and that’s what we have to do to make sure we get it right.”

Despite the result, Solomons said there were plenty of positives to take and believes that if the players can maintain their resilience, results will come.

“You do have to keep perspective,” he added.

“The side is giving absolutely everything. We have just played two games on six day turn arounds and there is no shortage of effort but we just need to close out our opportunities. 

“There were a lot of positives from the game and a lot of good play that could have gave us the points but it didn't happen for one reason or another but they gave it their all.

“The key is you have to be persistent and they must stay resilient and those two things are crucial.

“It is tough but it is frustration and that’s the main emotion for the lads tonight.

“They felt, we as coaches felt, they did enough tonight, they played really well. The tragedy was that they did well to get into the right areas of the pitch and create good chances but they couldn’t see them out.

“We didn’t convert pressure into points because we were definitely on top of them for most of the game.”
