Ming urges Town to keep pressure on Cougars
Dandy Town skipper Damon Ming has urged his side to make the most of their chances tomorrow when they lock horns with PHC at Southampton Oval.
Town, currently in second place and two points ahead of third place PHC, will be looking to keep pace with league leaders Devonshire Cougars who played Robin Hood last night.
PHC won the previous meeting 3-1, but Ming believes that the bigger picture should be looked at, and in the case of his Hornets, continue to apply pressure to the leaders.
“The only difference in being the hunted and the hunter is the fact that you can’t let up on the pressure if you are chasing,” he said. “The only thing we can do is get results, but with that being said they have already played and we know what we need to do to maintain our position.”
The Bermuda international is wary of the threat PHC possess and wants Town to be prepared and ready for a tough task.
“In PHC you have a very good team that has lots of pace so we need to be wary of their threat,” he said.
“It is always a thing of seeing what they do and adjust but if we can get on top early then it bodes well for us.
“It is the same motto as previous, one game at a time, we play Cougars next week and we have to give ourselves a chance to get right in the mix of the title hunt.”
