Three point haul from Tigers games pleases Dixon

Guildford Head Coach Paul Dixon admitted he was pleased with the Flames’ return of three points from their two meetings with Telford Tigers in the EPL play-offs.

The Flames followed up last week’s 3-0 win at Telford with a 3-2 overtime defeat on home ice on Wednesday, but still lead Group A by a point from the reigning league champions.

“That was quite a back and forth game, and overall a pretty exciting evening for the teams and fans alike,” said Dixon.

“Obviously it was disappointing to come away on the short end of the score, but it was still a result to hold ourselves at the top of the table and take the tie-breaker rights if we need that later.

“If someone would have told us we would take three out of four points against the league champions during the play-off round we would have taken that for sure, so we’re not going to dwell on the overtime outcome.

“Instead we will look ahead to a big game Friday at Sheffield, when we have a chance to lock down a spot in the final four weekend at Coventry.”
