HEAD coach Ryan Aldridge was pleased to see his players take their chances as Wildcats secured a superb victory on the road at Guildford tonight.
Both games between the two sides this weekend ended 4-2 to the away side, with the Cats producing a stunning comeback this evening as Henri Sandvik, Tomasz Malasinski, Lee Richardson and Aaron Nell found the net to drag the Wiltshire side back from two goals down at the Spectrum.
Aldridge was pleased with how clinical his players were in Surrey, after missing a string of chances at the Link Centre last night, while he also reserved some words of praise for netminder Stevie Lyle.
“We got the points we deserved last night, tonight,” Aldridge told Link Sport.
“Stevie Lyle was outstanding for 60 minutes and in the second half of the game we were exceptional, I’m pleased with every one of them.
“We’ve scored some good goals and we worked really hard and took our chances. Henri’s goal was superb and he played really well.
“A couple of our goals were rebound goals and we talked about how that’s where we need to get a few from this year, getting those second plays in front of the night. We all worked hard in the second period and it brought about the result.
“Richie’s (Lee Richardson’s) goal was superb, he doesn’t miss many from there and he picked his spot superbly to score. Aaron’s goal was great too and a very well-taken shot.
With confidence high following two stunning road wins, Aldridge insisted hard work on the ice still holds the key.
“We have to stay level headed now because we know we need to work hard, that’s vital, but working hard we got the win tonight,” he said.
“We have to out gut teams, it’s pretty simple.”
