SWINDON WILDCATS: All about the team for Bullas
SAM Bullas is well-aware that personal points don’t necessarily mean prizes and the Swindon forward admits that ‘something has to change’ if Wildcats are to arrest their disappointing run of form.
The Link Centre side have lost their three EPL games from winning positions and although Bullas scored twice in Saturday’s 8-6 defeat at Peterborough - including one classy top-shelf finish - the 23-year-old was still unhappy afterwards.
And the Nottingham-born man insists that victory against visitors Slough tonight is a must as the Wildcats aim to inject fresh impetus into their 2013/14 campaign.
“It’s always nice to score goals but even if I only get 10 points a year, I’d be happy if we won every game,” said Bullas.
“Points don’t really mean anything to me personally and we’ve got to pull together and sort ourselves out. We can’t keep losing games and something has got to change.
“I think we have to work hard at the right times and we need to be consistent, that’s the biggest thing for us right now.
“(Slough is) probably the biggest game of the year so far, we’ve got to come together and get the points.”
Meanwhile, the NIHL Wildcats were defeated 5-2 by Oxford City Stars on Sunday as their NIHL Cup campaign suffered a setback.
Josh Oliver put the Stars in front before his brother Nick Oliver doubled the lead as he beat Kevin McGurk.
Swindon pulled one back in a five-on-three powerplay at the end of the first period, with Czech defenceman Jan Melichar flicking high into the net.
In the second period Darren Elliott fired home from the slot following a Sam Broughton pass, before Josh Oliver struck on the powerplay to make it 4-1.
After calling a time out, Wildcats scored a second as man of the match Nathan Chilcott directed home a superb one-timer past goaltender James Skaife.
The third was a flat affair with Oxford adding their fifth goal courtesy of Alan Green from the top of the circle.
