Scottish whitewash sees Blaze hit rock-bottom

Coventry Blaze Head Coach Danny Stewart says the team’s confidence is at an all-time low after last weekend’s disastrous road trip to Scotland.

Blaze lost 5-1 at Dundee Stars, 4-3 at Fife Flyers and 8-2 at Edinburgh Capitals to slump to the bottom of the Elite League, but Stewart still believes his team are better than their current position.

“I would like to think we’ve hit rock bottom – I can’t expect us to go any lower than this weekend,” said Stewart.

“Before this weekend we had won three out of four – three in a row at home but okay, we had a very bad weekend and it started on Friday with a very bad performance.

“It is fixable because I still believe in this group and we do have some very good players in that room, we all just need to be better.

“Getting that mental confidence back is not like a flick of a switch – you’ve got to believe in yourself first and foremost and then you have to believe in your teammates.

“Like I said, the mentality in our dressing room is at an all-time low and it’s up to me to find ways to get that back.

“I told the guys the damage was done on Friday. We had a poor start and then we were chasing.

“The third game of a three-in-three is always going to be tough. We were tired and low on confidence, but we’ve got to find a way to pick ourselves up.”
