Blyth: We need 60-minute performance
London Raiders coach Alan Blyth has warned his side to be ready from the first drop of the puck as they return to National League action at Streatham on Sunday.
Raiders did not play last weekend, while the Redskins enjoyed home and away wins over leaders Chelmsford.
Blyth said: “Streatham will be high on confidence and we must be firing on all cylinders for the whole 60 minutes.
“Streatham have a tough fixture away to Isle of Wight on Saturday and we will arrive fresh from a weekend off and no game on the Saturday so fitness shouldn’t be an issue.
“We will look to take the game to Streatham and put them on the back foot early.”
Raiders raced into a 5-0 lead on their last trip to south London, but eventually lost 6-5.
Blyth added: “We will need to play in a disciplined manner and be tight at the back. Streatham have proved they have some deadly firepower when given time and space and that’s something that we will working on to restrict.
“This is the business end of the season where we need to be getting results away from home. It should be a cracker of a game as both us and Streatham are looking to climb the table and put in some good solid performances in the run-in to the play-offs.”
