SWINDON Wildcats defenceman Sam Godfrey is targeting nothing short of maximum points this weekend as Aaron Nell’s men face two of their title challengers in the National League.

Peterborough Phantoms – in third place – arrive at the Link Centre on Saturday before Godfrey and co. travel up to Telford to take on the league leaders.

Fresh off the back of a 10-game winning streak, the Wildcats endured something of a wobble when going down to Telford and Peterborough in mid-November.

But following last weekend's win over Hull, Godfrey insists confidence is still flowing within Cats’ dressing room and his teammates are backing themselves to record another four-point weekend.

He said: “We’ve made a good start to the league, but we’ve got a really tough weekend coming up.

“If we win these two, we’ll be flying and right up there in the mix.

“It will be the toughest weekend we’ve had so far – Telford is a massive one, so we really want to get the two points there.

“Telford, Peterborough, Basingstoke and Hull are the four big teams alongside us, and we’ll be battling it out for the top-five spots come the end of the season.

“That makes next weekend huge and we want four points.”

Should victory on both counts be achieved this weekend, Godfrey and his teammates will move into top spot again.

It will be tough to stay there for Christmas however, as Saturday represents Swindon’s final home game before the 25th.

And with home advantage proving important this season, Godfrey knows his team will have to fight tooth and nail if they are to achieve their goal for the beginning of 2020.

He said: “December is when the league really starts to take shape – teams then know where they’re at going into the final stretch.

“The Christmas period is huge for us – we’ve got a lot of games and we want to come out on top ready for the new year.

“We had a great run recently, but we let it slip a little bit. We’ve bounced back well and we’re ready for the Christmas period.”
