“When it comes to the games that are tight, we get bored and fed up of staying in the fight.

“I’m getting bored of us getting bored, I’ve had enough of it. The players have to get a grip of how we go about our business.

“We haven’t got long to sort it out because we play on Thursday. It’ll be two teams with a point to prove.”

“We had a lot of opportunities today - but at the end of your sets, what do you do with it?”

Asked if there were any more injuries, Powell said: “Just to our pride. We have got enough of them at the minute anyway.”
