SWINDON Wildcats were able to finish off a great week with a well deserved 4-2 win over Basingstoke Bison at the Link Centre.

The Wildcats were the first to break through, as Chris Jones notched in the seventh minute to make the most of Bison’s early penalty trouble.

However, that lead was short lived. Daniel Davies was the man to restore parity when he drove well towards Renny Marr’s net and poked home, as the first period ended a goal apiece.

The second period was largely uneventful at the Link Centre, but burst into life with just under 10 minutes remaining.

Luc Johnson was the first to score, as he made the most of the powerplay to the Cats by applying the finish to sweeping Swindon move, timed at 32:58.

Less than a minute later, their one goal advantage was doubled when Nell’s superb run was capped off with a great finish, as the in-from forward lashed home a third.

Bison hit back with a goal of their own through Stuart Mogg, who’s shot ensured the second period ended 3-2 to the home side.

The Wildcats made a slow start to the third period, which could be down to their busy schedule of late, where they have played four games in as many days.

Floyd Taylor gave up on the best chance of the period, when he fired wide after bursting clear on goal in the 48th minute.

The hosts continued to turn the screw and got the reward when Phil Hill converted Nell’s pass in the closing exchanges, to ensure all the points remained at the Link Centre.
