DESPITE recording its first win of the season against the NSW Swifts in round 5, West Coast Fever midcourter Ingrid Colyer said the Fever would not be complacent heading into tonights’s match.

“We matched up well against them last time, but we certainly won’t be underestimating them with a Sydney crowd and how they’ve been playing as well,” she said.

“They do (have a lot of depth in their midcourt) and it will be a good challenge.”

Colyer has had her most consistent season, recording 145 centre pass receives, 107 goal assists and five interceptions, and said Fever’s improvement during the season had been pleasing.

“We are certainly improving, and we are seeing that what we put in at training is definitely coming out in the game,” she said.

“For us, it’s just about finishing off the game and getting the win really.

“Every time we are playing a team the second time, we are reducing the margin and getting better.

“That is something we are really proud of, and we are happy that it is happening, but we still aren’t getting that win,” she said.

A win would see Fever leapfrog the Swifts into sixth position on the ladder.

Fever’s next home game is on May 20.
