WORCESTER Wolves will be searching for back-to-back victories tonight (Saturday) when they entertain the Milton Keynes Lions.
After last weekend's morale-boosting 100-80 league victory against Plymouth Raiders, a further win at the University of Worcester (tip-off 7pm) would cement Wolves' second place position in the BBL Championship table.
Wolves head coach Paul James said it was vital his team continue to perform to the levels which have earned them huge praise this season.
"We need to keep playing to he high level we have been playing over the last couple of weeks," he said.
"We carried our excellent form against Newcastle into the Plymouth game and I knew that if we could get anywhere near that level of play against the Raiders that we would win comfortably. It was a fantastic team performance."
Saturday's game will be the season decider between the two teams after both beat each other in their two previous meetings this season. And James has warned his Wolves side to be on their guard, especially against the Lions' leading league scorer Demarius Bolds.
"The Lions are an up-tempo team who use the running game to try and outscore teams," he added. "They are very active and gamble a lot on defence, so we need to take real care of the ball.
"Demarius Bolds is their key offensive weapon as he leads the league in points scored and steals. The first time we played them we got caught up in their kind of game and paid the price."
"The second time we played them we were much more focused and disciplined in our approach to the game and our quality came through."
