SCOTT Spearing says Bracknell Bees have turned the corner following their recent poor run of results, writes Dave Wright.

His injury-hit side ended a run of 10 successive defeats by hammering Swindon Wildcats 7-2 at The Hive on Saturday.

Bees lost the return National Cup game 5-3 on Monday, but played well against the Group D winners and even led 3-1 early in the third period.

“It was good to end our losing run,” said player-coach Spearing following Saturday’s match.

“We had been unlucky in a few of the games we lost, but we have built up some confidence and we played a really solid game. We stuck to our game plan with everybody putting in a good shift.

“Swindon have been playing well with some really good results recently, so it was good to beat them. There were plenty of positives to come out of this game.”

Spearing continued: “There have been games where we were either good defensively and not so good on the offensive, or the other way around, but on Saturday we married the two together and did a good job.

“Swindon are a very offensive team and can score a lot of goals, so it was good to keep them down to two goals. It was also nice to see us score seven with the goals spread around with different guys scoring. We must look to build on this game.”

Bees were once again not at full strength with Shaun Thompson among those missing, but he is due back soon and could even return this coming weekend.

Spearing commented: “It’s good we can get results like tonight’s when we are short of players like Shaun and a couple of other guys trying to play through injuries.”
