Guildford’s ice hockey teams go to Swindon looking to end poor form, as Ole Bjerkovoll reports
The Guildford Flames look to end a two-game winless run when they face the Wildcats in Swindon on Saturday night for the English Premiership matchup.
Guildford Flames have made a rocky start to the season with only five wins in their first 14 games in the League, Cup and Challenge Cup and go into this league match looking to kick back from two losses last weekend.
Last weekend saw the Flames lose 4-3 to Manchester Phoenix on penalties on Saturday, before being defeated away from home to Hull Pirates 6-4.
Swindon Wildcats are in great form at home, having only lost one of their eight home games so far this season. The Wildcats’ home games have usually had a fair amount of goals in them with the last three games ending 6-2, 5-3, 6-4, so there is a big chance for a great game from a neutral point of view when the Flames come to town.
As they go to Swindon the Flames will be looking to the dangerous trio of Slovenian Matic Kralj 22 Points (5 goals + 17 assists), Swede Jens Eriksson 19P, (8+11) and Ben Campbell with 16P (8+8) to produce their goals and avoid a third loss in a row.
As well as playing Swindon Wildcats on Saturday night the Flames go home to Guildford Spectrum for a match up with Basingstoke Bison on Sunday in a League/Cup matchup.
