Under performing Dragons told to keep it simple
Glamorgan Dragons coach Matthew Mott has told his players to go back to basics when they take on the Middlesex Panthers at the SWALEC Stadium in their first game off thie years Friends Life t20.
The Dragons will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing tournament last year which saw them win just six games to finish second bottom in the Southern Group.
"The danger of Twenty20 is to outthink yourself and get too complicated. It's the same as the other formats. It's making good decisions under pressure," said Mott.
"Hopefully if we simplify our processes, identify the players particular roles then they can go out and enjoy themselves and execute what we've talked about," he added.
Since reaching the 2004 Finals Day the Dragons have only appeared in one quarter final since, a 45 run drubbing against the Durham Dynamos in 2008.
Having suffered such a poor season last year the Dragons have targeted a quarter final spot this year and will be buoyed by a crowd of over 5,000 for their first game against the Panthers.
