Player-coach takes back seat in Streatham

Raiders player-coach Danny Marshall praised his men after their National League win at Streatham last night.

Marshall was forced to look on from the bench, with regular level two coach Alan Blyth unavailable, but was delighted with the efforts of his side in their 5-4 success in south London.

He said: “It was good to take a back seat, although I don’t like watching, and all of the boys gave 100 per cent.

“We didn’t really liven up until late in the second period at Invicta on Saturday, but we had only trained once in three weeks.

“But the boys picked up from where we left off in the third period at Invicta and it was a superb performance from everyone. Every goal was worked for.”

Billy Phillips and Grant Taylor netted twice each, with import Jakub Klima claiming what turned out to be the game-winning goal.

But the match was marred by a scuffle at the end of the second period, with Marshall adding: “Streatham tried to rough things up, but we stood our ground.

“It is what is is. The boys got the job done and we know what to expect in the play-offs.

“It looks like we’ll get them and we know we can beat them. They’re getting a lot of fans in their new rink and want results.”
