THE Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats head coach Aaron Nell says his team must be more clinical if they are to stand a chance of winning the National Ice Hockey League title.

Swindon have 10 games left this season with key battles against Milton Keynes Lightning on Friday night and Sheffield Tigers at the Link Centre on Saturday.

After being beaten twice by Leeds Knights last weekend, the Cats chief is keen to see his team take their chances during a difficult weekend against two title rivals.

Nell said: “Right now, I think we’re not quite as clinical as we need to be.

“Leeds, last Sunday in particular, were clinical. On the break they played really well, and their top guys were firing and scoring goals.

“We had a lot of huff and puff about our game, we had a lot of possession, we did a lot of good things, but the key is putting the puck in the net. We need to get better at doing that.”

With both having played 36 games, Swindon trail Telford by four points but remain in with a chance of lifting another piece of silverware this season.

Nell says he and his team will never stop believing until it’s mathematically impossible, and all they can do is look after themselves while hoping Telford come unstuck late on.

Nell said: “Every game is big now that we’ve got less than 10 games left.

“Telford lost a game that we probably expected them to win last weekend, so there’s still a chance.

“With 10 games left, there’s still a long way to go. We’ve both got really tough fixtures, and Telford have got a cup final to play in too.

“If you want to win a league, you have to go to tough places and win. That’s what they did against Milton Keynes last weekend.

“It’s going to be really tough, but we need to put our best in to have a chance.”
