Bullas calls for Swindon Wildcats to be clinical

Sam Bullas thinks that Swindon Wildcats need to be more clinical in their bid to pick themselves out of a rut.
Thinking like a forward, Bullas believes the solution to Wildcats’ flat form in the last couple of weeks lies in front of goal.
Cats have been restricted to just three goals a game in the last their three outings.
“I think the biggest thing is to start capitalising on our chances, we create them but we have make them count,” Bullas said.
The 23-year-old thinks a bit more hard work from Cats should see them defeat Milton Keynes Lightning for the first time this season.
“We have to make sure we outwork them as a team, keep our D locked down, that’s for the whole 60 minutes, not just spells.
“It’s basic stuff really but that’s the way it is.
“I think whenever we’ve played against them it has been tight, they’ve been very tough games.
“I feel like we’ve been close especially in the home games and they’ve got a lucky bounce.”
Wildcats currently sit in the final play-off birth but have a number of games in hand on the team above them.
In order make be sure of their spot in the post-season Cats need to bounce back from their home loss against Bracknell Bees last Saturday.
Bullas called for the team to pull up their socks to end their recent rut.
“It’s about coming together as a team right now, everyone has got to step up, it’s a massive game.
“It’s hard after a loss, you have to try and regroup. Our job is to go out there and perform and for the last couple of weeks we have been a bit flat.
“It can’t just be one person, it’s a whole team performance, we’re all responsible.”
