Dragons defeat a 'wake-up call'
Leopards’ forward Carl Josey is looking for the Big Cats to bounce back from their loss against Bradford Dragons when they host Leicester Warriors at the Brentwood Centre today (Sunday).
Leaoprds lost 94-72 last weekend, with Josey scoring 10 points and 13 rebounds.
He said: “The Bradford game it is a serious wake-up call.
“We have gotten away from what makes us successful and that’s myself included. We have to play with more passion, energy and composure.
“We have to let the ball move and regain trust in each other again.
“I hate to lose but sometimes things just don’t go the right way on a given night but at points I felt like we stopped fighting and just rolled over.
“This is unacceptable and will not happen again. All that aside we have to move forward and learn from the mistakes and get better and that starts against Leicester
“This game against Leicester is going to be no walkover as we saw in the Trophy group game. We need to come out and set the tone defensively and dictate our pace and not fall into the trap of playing at theirs.
“We have to contain their guards and not give them second chances shot by controlling the boards.”
Today’s action at the Brentwood Centre tips off at 4pm, with tickets available on the door.
They are priced £6 for adults, £4 for concessions and £16 for a two-adult, two-child family ticket.
