Flames’ boss still looking for improvements

Guildford Head Coach Paul Dixon believes the Flames can still improve despite maintaining their unbeaten record in the EPL play-offs.

Victories against Sheffield Steeldogs and Peterborough Phantoms over the weekend left the Flames two points clear of Telford Tigers at the top of Group A, but Dixon thinks there’s more to come from his team.

“We don’t think the win over Sheffield will ever be remembered as our best performance,” said Dixon.

“It was not a good showing by the club, but we did figure out a way to get a win, and I guess at this time of year that is the most important thing.

“Having said that, we have to be much better than that, and, indeed, we were much better on Sunday in Peterborough where they have lost very few games all season.

“All around the team it was exactly the response we needed, and it converted to a win that put us in a great spot at the halfway point in the round schedule.

“We don’t have time to pat ourselves on the back though, with a huge game on Wednesday night at home to Telford and the closing weekend to follow.”
