Force face a pivotal weekend against the only two teams they have beaten so far, with Durham in town tonight (7.30pm) before a trip to Surrey United tomorrow.

McCann led the way with 23 points in the defeat to Sheffield last week, when Leeds were wide of the mark with much of their shooting.

But the San Diego State graduate is confident progress is being made and can be accelerated.

“We’re getting better every week but being a young team it’s tough for us to close out games right now,” said McCann.

“But I’m confident we can get a couple more wins before the end of the month and as long as we’re competitive every night, that’s all we’re looking for.”

On his own development, McCann added: “I’m enjoying my time here and I think I’m finally getting used to the style of play.

“It’s a bit different to the States, expecially college with the 24-clock.

“But I’ve been getting more comfortable over the last month or so.”
