SUMMER signing Chris Jones is happy to have hit the goal trail for Swindon Wildcats, although the forward says victory for the team will always be his top priority.

Welshman Jones, who joined the Cats from Elite League side Cardiff Devils for the 2017-18 campaign, took his tally to three goals in six appearances with a brace in last Saturday’s 7-4 success at home to Invicta Dynamos.

With a wealth of experience in the top flight to his name – including a winners' medal last season – Jones is expected to lead from the front for the Cats as they look to string together a successful season in NIHL South One.

Aaron Nell’s troops host Cardiff Fire at the Link Centre on Saturday before travelling to London Raiders 24 hours later.

Although Jones is hoping he continues to make an impact in his own right, a strong Swindon performance remains the main focus.

“It’s always nice to contribute and to score goals to help the team win because ultimately, the main goal is to get the two points in each game,” said Jones.

“I would like to think I am trying to lead by example. I am just doing whatever I can to help the team, whether that’s scoring goals or being solid defensively.

“It’s not about what I do, though, because the win for the team is the most important thing ultimately.

“I think we are getting better in each match and that is starting to show in the results now too.

“We have started to score lots of goals and we are starting to click more and more when we are on the ice. I think as the weeks go on, we will become stronger and stronger.”

The Cats have been beaten just once in six matches so far this season and boast a 100 per cent record from their three contests on home ice.

With tomorrow’s visitors Cardiff having yet to taste victory at all in the league this term, Jones is hoping to reinforce the fact that the Link Centre is fast becoming a place to be feared.

“We need to make this place a tough place to come and at the moment, it’s a case of so far so good. I think we have been fairly strong in each match at home,” said 26-year-old Jones.

“We had little bit of a blip in the middle of the game against Invicta last weekend but overall, we were solid and we have been in every home match so far.

“It’s important we try to keep that going as we don’t want to give away too many points at home.”
