BLACKBURN Hawks coach Dan MacKriel insists his side's job is not done yet ahead of tomorrow's Moralee Conference clash with Solway Sharks.

The Hawks have won five games on the bounce heading into the fixture and sit nine points clear at the top of the table meaning that victory tomorrow would put them within touching distance of retaining their league championship.

But MacKriel is remaining level headed with sixth-placed Solway - the last team to beat Hawks back in January.

“We’re approaching the game as we always approach any other," said MacKriel who believes his side have learnt the lessons from their loss in Scotland last month.

“We don’t want to get too carried away and we’re just going to take one game at a time and see where those four games take us.

"When they beat us in Solway, we all knew we weren’t at our best.

"We didn’t perform, we know that now, and coming into the last four league games, we need to be ready and prepared. It’s about setting the mentality right and understanding it’s going to be another tough game as they all are.”

Solway are down in sixth place in the standings but are still in the running for a play-off place themselves and MacKriel wants a repeat of his side's performance last weekend when they won 7-0 away at Sutton Sting.

“We were impressive throughout the 60 minutes last weekend and hopefully we can repeat that high level of tempo and skill," said the Hawks chief.

"All the boys are putting in a lot of work and the teamwork and team ethic for the past few weeks has been at a really high standard, with everybody contributing.

Following the visit of Solway, MacKriel's men take a break from league action and switch their attention to the cup.

The Hawks travel to Widnes Wild in the league cup next weekend before the same opponents visit Blackburn on March 6 as the Hawks bid to keep alive their hopes of ending the season with three trophies.

Tomorrow's match is a 5.45pm face-off at Blackburn Arena.
