STEVE Worrall believes Coventry’s eight-point advantage going into the second leg of the Elite League play-off semi-final has only served to make the tie ‘more interesting’.
The battle between the Bees and the Robins is firmly in the balance following the first leg at Brandon on Monday night, after the hosts fired from top to bottom to secure an eight-point lead.
Worrall admitted the Robins had let a few points slip but believes the final is still well within reach and that the size of the deficit simply adds some spice.
“I think we’ll be alright to be honest, eight points isn’t that much and we beat them by a lot at Swindon the last time we had them there,” he said.
“They got knocked about a bit but I think we will be okay.
“A few things went on which weren’t ideal and maybe we could have had the five or six points that Rosco wanted but it wasn’t the case and it makes it more interesting now.”
Worrall was excluded from heat 14 after crashing into partner Dakota North, after the Aussie had locked up, but the reserve refused to blame difficult track conditions and doesn’t believe he was at fault.
“The track was terrible, really bad, and I didn’t enjoy it one bit,” he said.
“It wasn’t anything to do with the track in heat 14, though. Dak came into the corner and locked up, I was coming in fast behind him and there was nowhere for me to go really.
“I didn’t see that as a mistake on my part, Dak locked up, decided he was going again and there was nowhere to go.
“I was on the line and you can’t just change all of a sudden.”
