the Sharks have already established two unwanted club records this season and player-coach Atiba Lyons is in no mood to set anymore.

Five defeats in a row, including four in the Championship, have left Sharks with their worst run in the club’s history - beating the four in early 2004 - and their poorest start to a league season ever.

Lyons, who will lead his side against Worcester Wolves tonight (7.30pm) at the EIS said it’s time his team found the winning formula.

He said: “We’ve had a tough run with how the schedule was set up but we need to start making plays at the end of the game.

“Winning at home is important because it is always tough to go on the road and get something no matter where it is.

“Worcester are a good team. They’ve beaten some good sides like Plymouth and Glasgow as well as winning against those they’d be expected to beat.

“It’s still too early to say where teams will end up. Everyone will have injuries and there will be good runs and bad runs all season.”

Sharks will be without veteran skipper Adrian Anderson who has had surgery on a broken finger.
