Bradford 4/9/10 (away)

Saturday saw us travelling to Bradford for our first League game of the new season. The players were looking forward to putting right the wrongs from the Newcastle tournament, which saw Bradford battle out a 2-2 draw.

The game was delayed, due to damaged nets, which saw us start on the powerplay, we switched our 1st and 2nd lines around, to give us a more varied attack, and went right at them from the start. All in all, we controlled the game, but still made some sloppy mistakes which i am desperate to cut out, when we play against a more skilled opposition, we will be punished.

We showed moments of brilliance, which i know is there, we just need to be stronger, and more disciplined in all 3 zones.

We completely deserved our 7-2 victory, which could have been more. We had some fantastic performances, and the guys are looking forward to next weekends home double headers v Blackburn, and Nottingham.

Thank you to all the supporters who made the trip with us.

    good start Greg – you can only beat what is in front of you and the team looked good i thought – occasionally some of our forwards need to pass a bit more as there were a few occasions where people were better placed to get a higher quality shot away. Never been as cold in a rink before and was a bit odd where us Spartans fans outnumbered home fans 3 to 1.
