CARL FORSTER has urged his North Wales Crusaders players not to get carried away as they look to stretch their fine winning run.

Looking to make it four wins on the bounce, Crusaders host Midlands Hurricanes on Sunday and it is a pivotal battle in the race for the League One play-offs.

Head coach Forster told the club’s website: “First things first, I’ve got to give the lads full credit for three hard fought wins including two long away trips back-to-back.

“We’re a bit battered and have been low on numbers due to injuries, but they’ve come together and pulled through with the sort of spirit that will put us in a good position going into this final stage of the season.

“Sunday’s win in Cornwall wasn’t pretty, and I can’t sit here and say that I was pleased with the performance, but on the flip side of that, the table doesn’t talk in anything other than points so we take the win and move on.

“What none of us can afford to do now is get carried away, it’s three wins on the spin, but that puts us back into those play-off places, and there’s three or four teams now fighting it out over these last few games, whoever takes their eye off the ball will be the ones to miss out. A lot of people have spoken to me about the ‘four games’ which ends with Midlands this weekend, but to me that’s not the case, we need to be at our best standard from now right through until the end of the season to achieve what we want to.”
