WORCESTER Wolves head coach Matt Newby insists consistency remains the key for his side, as they approach a hectic period of games in the coming weeks.

Wolves have seven fixtures across the next 21 days and with the league being as compact as it is, gaining wins and building momentum ahead of play-off time is crucial.

Newby's side currently sit in seventh position in the British Basketball League with 22 points, just six points behind second placed Newcastle Eagles.

A run of wins now would see them push themselves further up the table but Newby says his team must find some consistency in order to do so.

Wolves won five of their six games through the end of February and start of March before losing back-to-back games against Manchester Giants and Bristol Flyers last week.

"Last week was challenging with two performances against Manchester and Bristol where we as collective felt we had not delivered," said Newby.

"Conversely at the Copper Box on Sunday we found new levels in connectivity, output and intensity, arguably delivering our first four quarter performance of the season against the Lions.

"Finding form and building on it is key at this juncture with just over three weeks remaining and each team jostling for their final position.

"The condensed calendar provides each franchise with unique challenges; with players accruing significant minutes in short windows, this will be very much a test of each rosters depth, their physical endurance and psychologically how resilient they can be.

"We have 7 games remaining over 21 days and the league remains relatively compact."

Wolves did win their last game against London Lions and now head into the Easter weekend with two games in three days, starting tomorrow away at Bristol Flyers and then on Easter Sunday at home against London Lions.

"Bristol currently occupy the 8th spot and have made some big statements in the last week claiming the win over us last Friday and suffocating Leicester on Tuesday night 80 – 54 in one of the most physical games of the year," added Newby

"Critically hard-nosed defence and physicality is part of the Flyers identity, however Coach Kapoulas has a backcourt now which is clicking and output has increased as Wilcher, Okereafor, Mockford and Lockett have found the strengths in one another’s games.

"We are catching the Flyers at a dangerous time and need to be at our best on Friday night with the head to head record an imperative for each unit.

"The Lions are our opposition on Sunday with the London franchise still chasing the highest order playoff spot and still an outside chance of the league title, they are as dangerous as their billing. Following two defeats on the bounce against Newcastle and ourselves, Vince Maculays charges put in a strong shift midweek against Surrey.

"The conversations will often revert to Deandre Liggins who is undoubtedly a high end talent with a well-rounded skill set and an innate ability to impact so many aspects of the game. However the roster that the Lions assembled for the demands of both a vastly improved BBL and Champions League Basketball in Europe; one through fifteen is impressive.

"The match up on Sunday affords us another opportunity to match up with this formidable unit and that challenge is one the players are excited about."
