WORTHING Thunder Basketball Club coach Daniel Hildreth is targeting wins in all six of his side’s remaining games as they bid to reach the EBL Division 1 play-offs.

Thunder won at home to Leicester Warriors and Team Northumbria at the weekend and have another two home matches this weekend.

Worthing entertain Newham Neptunes on Saturday (7.30pm), before they host Medway Park Crusaders on Sunday (5pm). Medway have given Thunder home advantage for the game, after they conceded the National Trophy tie between the two sides earlier in the season, which would have been played at Worthing Leisure Centre.

Hildreth said: “We’re in a situation where we need to win all of our remaining games and we’re going to need other results to go in our favour as well.

“We were in this situation last year, when we were also in a case of needing other teams to lose.

“The two wins at the weekend have put us in contention for a play-off place and all we can do is take care of ourselves.

“We’ll just take one game at a time and prepare for the team we’re up against next.”

American Terrell Bell played with a twisted ankle in the two games at the weekend and Hildreth hopes he will have fully recovered for the two games this week.
