AN Aaron Nell brace guided Swindon Wildcats to a two-goal win against Streatham in their playoff quarter final first leg fixture.

The Wildcats skipper, who only 24 hours earlier helped the club lift its first major trophy in 27 years, scored twice in London to earn the Link Centre men a comfortable first leg victory ahead of the return fixture tomorrow.

Nell scored with four minutes remaining in the opening period before adding a second three minutes into the middle period.

Should Cats lose by one-goal, draw or win tomorrow’s fixture, they will progress to the semi-final stage of the NIHL Playoffs – which are scheduled to take place next weekend.
