COACH David Colclough has heaped the pressure on his Swindon Shock side after labelling this weekend as the ‘most important’ of the season.

The New College side are in a dangerous predicament in the Division Three South table, where they sit second-from-bottom with six points.

Shock have two games this weekend as they look to distance themselves from the relegation zone with a match against Greenwich Titans at home on Saturday before travelling to Solent Kestrels II a day later.

The double-header signifies the start to a frantic period for Colclough and his side, who have a total of four games in the next week.

“This weekend is massive. I have looked at our schedule and realised we were only one loss away from the rest of the league,” said Colclough.

“We are playing all of the teams near us. Everyone is beating everybody, so if we win the rest of our games, we could end up in the play-offs.

“I’m pleading with the weather to stop because we are running out of time to schedule the games which have been postponed.

“The two teams aren’t too different this weekend. Greenwich are the better team, we lost to them earlier in the year but that was only because we got ourselves into foul trouble.

“The defeat looked worse than it was. We had a four-point lead with 20 seconds to go before we had a bad moment.”

With the potential of relegation back to National League Division Four South West looming, Colclough says his troops need to buck their ideas up if they are to retain their current status.

“We could get relegated. This is why we need to make sure we win two or three of the games we have next week,” said Colclough.

“That should get us out of the relegation zone but if we don’t win, anything could happen.”

Shock will be without Spencer Wells and Chris Cole for the remainder of the season.
