SWINDON Shock player-coach David Colclough has labelled this weekend’s away clash with Greenwich Titans as a must-win for his side.

With just one victory in their maiden season as a National League Division Three South side, Colclough is more than aware his troops need to pick up points as soon as possible if they are to mount a play-off charge.

“We are thinking, if we can win this one that will put us in a position where we are almost in play-off contention again,” he said.

“That would get us to where we need to be again.”

Shock have also felt the benefits of having two weeks off, as their last two fixtures were postponed.

Coach Colclough says as a result, his troops are desperate to get back on the court.

“We are just dying to play at this stage. We need to figure out if we are going to win or lose,” added Colclough.

“I think we are there. Our training has been really good over the last couple of weeks but we haven’t had the gratification of playing.”

Despite the two postponements in recent weeks, Colclough says it is still too soon for top scorer Spencer Wells to return to the fore, as he continues to struggle with a back injury.

“We are another two weeks away from having Spencer Wells back,” he added. “Matt Ford is back, he has had a couple of weeks off with a bad back as well.

“Spencer has more of a nerve issue so I think he is going to have an injection to fix that.

“He had it done last year and that really helped him on his right side, but now the problem is on his right side.

“It’ll be nice to have him back because he is our leading scorer and a lot of our offence goes through him.”
