THE Ipswich Musketeers are planning to ride their hottest streak of the year a little further this weekend.

Their Brisbane Major League mini-revival of three straight wins included two wins over bottom-placed Narangba last weekend (8-7 and 11-8), and an 8-3 upset of Indians on January 6.

"The guys were pretty happy with that," player-coach Greg Suthers said.

"They were pretty rapt after we won the first two.

"It was the first time, I think, we've strung any wins together (this season)."

Suthers puts it down to a determination to turn over a new leaf in the new year, following a disappointing period before Christmas. "It's a new year," Suthers said.

"We tried to start on a positive note and it's sort of worked for us. Everybody is doing their bit.

"We're starting to hit as a team, rather than as individuals."

The Muskets face a tough task to keep their run going, however, with matches against fifth-placed Surfers Paradise at the coast this evening and Sunday.

"It will be interesting this weekend, depending on the weather," Suthers said. "Gold Coast are always a good team. If we can take one or two off them, it will be good and we can take some confidence from it."

Confidence has been the biggest thing Suthers has tried to instil in his squad this year.

"It helps us not drop our bundle when we make a mistake," Suthers said.

"Which is what had been happening. It's gotten better over the last few weeks.

"We want the guys to build confidence and understand that sometimes things don't go your way.

"You can't drop your bundle. Or one mistake becomes 10 very quickly."
