EXPERIENCED forward Alex Navajas has called on his team-mates to keep believing in themselves as Worcester Wolves tackle fifth-placed Sheffield Sharks at the University of Worcester Arena tonight (7.30pm).

Bottom club Wolves ended their long losing streak last month with back-to-back victories over Surrey Scorchers and Plymouth Raiders.

They then pushed high-flying Leicester Riders only to lose 85-80 at the arena and Navajas wants Wolves to maintain a winning mentality.

“Sheffield are always a good, hard team,” Navajas said.

“They have Dirk Williams and Chris Alexander who are two amazing players with a lot of talent. But we need to think about ourselves.

“We need to believe that we can win every game.

“It doesn’t matter if we are playing against Surrey, Leicester or Sheffield we need to believe in ourselves, play together and give 100 per cent.”

Wolves lost 89-67 to Sharks in November before being thrashed 114-76 at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield in January.

Since that sorry defeat Navajas has returned to the club and Tony Garbelotto has come in as interim head coach with ill boss Ty Shaw continuing his recovery.

Navajas acknowledged that it had been a difficult season for Wolves and praised the fans for sticking by the club.

“The ‘Wolfpack’ are the sixth player,” the Spaniard added.

“They might be angry about the situation but they keep coming to support us so I can only say thank you to them and to keep coming to games as we need them.”
