WE face our biggest - and arguably toughest – weekend of the season so far with three games in as many days, starting tonight at Peterborough Phantoms in the first leg of our Autumn Cup semi-final.

Three games in a weekend is a tough schedule – we’ve got Invicta Dynamos and Milton Keynes Thunder in the league after tonight’s tie.

It’s going to be tough, both mentally and physically. But in these situations, you’ve got to take things one game at a time.

We haven’t played Peterborough yet this season and they’ve put in some fantastic performances.

They’re on a bit of a run, it’s going to be a tough battle.

We’ve then got our two league games to think about.

This is a chance to build momentum, record four league points and establish an Autumn Cup aggregate lead.

It is tough to play that many fixtures on the spin, but I’ve been playing hockey for a long time now and it’s what I’m used to.

That applies to the majority of our roster too – your body adapts.

Those last few shifts on the Sunday often come down to who wants it more.

If you want it that bit more than the opposition, your legs will produce a bit more.

Last weekend, we turned around the disappointment of our home loss against Streatham when beating Milton Keynes.

Milton Keynes are struggling a bit this season, and I believe they lost a couple of players last week too.

It was good to get that win under our belt and establish some momentum again.

London Raiders then came out really hard on Sunday, they were physical and battled for the whole game.

They definitely had a gameplan, and they stuck to it – it was a tough game for us.

Away from the rink, though, I’d like to highlight the superb work that the club and Dave Ridley from Swindon Wildcats in the Community are doing.

The fans are integral to the club, and it’s amazing to give something back.

I know Dave is doing a fantastic job this year.

The fanzone has been brilliant – I popped along recently.

I know Dave and the club want to do more and bring in some of the club’s legends to create a buzz before the game.
