Team manager Mick Cahill moved quickly to try and dispel disquiet among Raiders fans following remarks made by player-coach Danny Marshall following the 10-5 home thrashing by Bracknell on Sunday.

Marshall seemed to suggest that it was a ‘nothing game’ which left some fans angered by the suggestion.

Cahill retorted: “We were disappointed, but philosophical after Sunday’s defeat and when Danny said it was a nothing game, he meant only in so far as it made no difference to our finishing position in the league,” he insisted.

“Saturday’s victory at Solent sealed fourth place for us and nothing that happened on Sunday could change that.

“However, despite our short bench we definitely wanted to reward our supporters and end our league schedule with a win.

“The plan was to win the game with no new knocks or major penalties and for the first half of the match, it looked like we might just do that. In the end, we only achieved the last of those three.”

Cahill put the defeat down to injuries: “Unfortunately, due to injury and suspension we started with just eight skaters and a goalie having pitched back-up netminder Frankie Sabine in as an emergency forward.

“In the end, Bracknell’s superior numbers told and we just ran out of gas on the night.”
