Dixon sets sights on future battles

Guildford Flames’ Head Coach Paul Dixon hopes his team will kick on after they blasted ten goals past Bracknell Bees on Sunday.

Marek Maslonka’s five-goal haul was the highlight of the game, but Dixon is already eyeing next weekend’s fixtures as he looks to drive the Flames back up the EPL table.

“That was certainly an unexpected surprise – you don’t even think of scoring ten goals on a team, but it was certainly our night right from the start,” said Dixon.

“We were right on them and when you manage to convert some early opportunities it takes some pressure off and offers a burst of confidence that helps it all to fall into place from there.

“It was a good night, but as happy as we are with that outcome, the game is behind us now and since it is no predictor whatsoever of realistic future offensive success, it’s important that we quickly set our eyes upon the next task of Manchester Phoenix and Hull Pirates.”

Dixon also confirmed Finnish netminder Joonas Kuusela and British defender Rupert Quiney have both been released by the club.
