BLACKBURN Hawks manager Steve Duncombe says his team are keen to bounce back after two defeats last weekend.

Duncombe thinks the Hawks need to improve on their concentration in key moments of matches as they look to avoid more losses.

Both games for Blackburn are in the league this weekend so Duncombe sees this as a good chance to bounce back after recent disappointment.

“The players will be keen to put things right. The players know we should be doing better than we are," he said.

"We’ll come to training and have a laugh in the changing rooms and then get out on the ice and look to do what we do best.”

Sunday’s defeat has left a bitter taste in the manager’s mouth as he felt they should’ve won that game.

He added: “I think we should’ve done better in the Sunday game. We need to start playing for 60 minutes instead of going to sleep for a few minutes here and there. That is what’s costing us in matches.”

When asked whether the two defeats last weekend will dent the morale within the squad, Duncombe replied: “I don’t really know yet, I’ll see at training where we’ll try to get back on track. It’s always tough after two defeats especially after the way the match went on Sunday. We should have done better in that match.”

Blackburn sit in eighth place in the league and Duncombe sees this weekend as a chance to get back on track.

“It’s a good chance to take all four points and climb up the league table," he said. "As mentioned earlier, there’s been a few moments in matches where we’ve lost concentration and we’ve been made to pay for it.”

When asked about the squad for these matches, Duncombe said: “We’re missing Danielius Nomanovas, he’s banned for Saturday but available for Sunday. Other than that, we’ve got a full squad.”

The Hawks are in action at Solihull today and on Sunday they host Nottingham.
