Guildford Flames‘ boss Paul Dixon admits he is frustrated by his team’s failure to break their current run of poor form.
Defeats against Peterborough Phantoms and Telford Tigers at the weekend left the Flames with just one win from their last seven games.
Despite the results, Dixon has backed his players to come good.
“The frustration is certainly running at a high level – on Sunday in particular we deserved better than to go home empty-handed in points,” said Dixon.
“You couldn’t blame the players if there was a feeling of disbelief when the game was tied at a goal each at the end of 20 minutes.
“We had the puck for probably eighty percent of the period and did a lot of really good things, including taking a slim lead.
“Then suddenly a bit of a good fortune for them evened it up. At the moment it feels like no matter what we do, we get the worst possible outcome, but we have to overcome the tendency to think like that.
“It’s tough going right now, no question, but we have character people in our room and we have to keep believing we will work our way out of it.”
