Moore wants to repay the fans in Link double-header
SWINDON skipper Shane Moore knows the Wildcats have a duty to remind their loyal fans what they are truly capable of during their back-to-back home games this weekend.
The Link Centre side host Sheffield and Milton Keynes on Saturday and Sunday having lost their last match on home ice 4-0 to Manchester Phoenix last Saturday, before losing 6-1 at Guildford the following night.
Moore knows Cats let themselves down last weekend and wants to put things right this week, and while he believes having two games at home is an advantage he insisted it’s a chance which must be taken.
“This is certainly a rare treat for us, but the only downside is we will probably now have a double away at some point too,” he said.
“It’s good to have two home games though, because it takes the pressure off the travelling and means we don’t have boys sitting on the bus for hours before games like Manchester.
“Being on home territory is always better, but we need to take advantage of it because we let ourselves down a little last weekend.
“Having two home games the weekend after is the perfect opportunity to remind a few of the fans what we can do, and this is an opportunity we have to seize.
“I was disappointed with both results last weekend because I know we have a team which should be competing with the top six in the table, and we didn’t do that last weekend.
“We showed the other teams too much respect and laid down our swords and let them at us.
“We weren’t good enough last weekend and hopefully we can make amends and show the Wildcats fans we are going to be an aggressive home team.”
With away wins already at Basingstoke and Peterborough Moore admitted the travelling Wildcats fans are probably seeing the best of them at the moment, but is hopeful of changing that this weekend against the Steeldogs and MK Lightning.
“We’ve played better away which isn’t the norm, but we’ve still picked up some points which is pretty good,” he said.
“Points are points though wherever you get them, but for us it would be great if we can get them at home and entertain our fans.
“We have two tough games, but I’m confident we can get the results.”
Both of Wildcats’ home games this weekend are ‘kids go free’ games. For more information call 01793 886857.
