GOODWIN: "IT'S TIME TO START WINNING AGAIN"

22/01/2009 18:06

In the build-up to this Saturday evening's home clash with Team Durham Wildcats, Captain Jamie Goodwin believes now is the time to get back to winning ways, especially in front of the Wasps' home crowd at the Gemtec Arena.

In his programme column, 'Captain's Log', Goodwin has commented on the team's performances since new year. Since the start of 2009, Hull Wasps have played 2 games against top opposition, firstly Ilkeston Outlaws and more recently Leeds Carnegie, who both lie in 3rd and 1st respectively. Hull didn't win either game but managed to compete, even if it wasn't their best performances.

"It is time we stopped looking back at games and saying how we would have won, and instead put some victories on the board. We know we can beat any team in this league, but we need to start showing our home fans that."

"We had a good training session on Tuesday and spirits remain high despite a three-game losing streak."

Goodwin who played in Sunday's derby game against Leeds has also said that he should be back to his best after, what he admits, was a poor performance against the table-toppers.

"On a personal note, I have finally shaken off the debilitating bout of man flu I was carrying in last week’s game, so I should hopefully resemble a basketball player this week after admittedly playing a shocker against Leeds."

Goodwin's full column will be published in this weekend's Wasps Game-Night Programme and will be on sale for just £1.
