Jim’s thoughts on keeping players grounded with three road games ahead:

“Yeah, I mean, it’s going to be difficult. We’ve had a good eye on those three games going on the road, we knew it would be a challenge. At the same time, we’ve proven we can win on the road, we can get points on the road. You can see now in this league when some of the teams at the bottom are desperate and they’re fighting for points there are no easy games home or away in this league, so we know we have a challenge ahead of us. We want to go into those final two home games being in the playoffs and then go from there and try and work our way up in terms of seeding.”
