HORSHAM Hornets co-coach Damien Kilpatrick is confident the side can turn its lacklustre form around against Western Port tomorrow night.
The Wimmera Roadways Hornets slipped to third on the Big V division two ladder following their 75-70 loss to ladder leaders Craigieburn Eagles in a top-of-the-table clash on Saturday night.
The Hornets’ four losses have come against fellow top four sides Craigieburn twice, Melton and Keysborough.
Kilpatrick said Horsham knew its best basketball was capable of beating the competition’s best sides.
“As long as we finish in the top four, we know we can still challenge them,” he said. “We’ve had four losses from 14 games. In three games we played terrible basketball but only lost by two or three points.”
Kilpatrick said the Hornets, who flew out of the blocks and won their opening seven matches, were in a rut.
“The problem at the moment and what we are trying to resolve is playing as a team and playing for four quarters,” he said. “All players are out of form and we’re still only losing by a couple of points.
“If we find form we’ll be all right but we need to find it now.”
Kilpatrick said it was vital the Hornets clinched a win away against the Steelers tomorrow night.
The sixth-placed Steelers are coming off two losses, including dropping a game to bottom-placed Pakenham.
Kilpatrick said the Hornets could not afford to be complacent.
“They will be pretty angry and upset and we are in a form slump at the moment,” Kilpatrick said.
The Hornets’ line-up will remain unchanged until centre Stuart Robinson returned from overseas and teenage guard Darcy Tucker becomes available after Vic Country under-16 commitments.
