RESPECT is the key to success for Wildcats when they take on Telford on Sunday, according to forward Sam Bullas.

Telford currently occupy basement position in the EPL following a difficult season that has seen them take just four wins in 23 games.

However, Nottingham-born Bullas believes the Tigers should be treated like any other opposition and a failure to do this could result in his team returning to Wiltshire without two points.

“Telford turn up at times when you don’t really expect them to, so we have to go there and play to our full capability to win the game,” he said.

“You have to show every team respect but at the same time know you can win.

“You can never get cocky or overconfident because teams like Telford can turn you over.

“Sometimes it’s harder to play against lower-end teams because you almost drop to their level.”

Wildcats are enjoying a positive run of form of late having won three out of their last four games.

And Bullas thinks with the league at its halfway point, a top-half finish is still very much within reach for the Link Centre side.

“We have six points out of the last eight and that is what we needed,” he said.

“Spirit in the camp is high at the moment. We’ve seen how the league can change and the top half is where we should be.”
