Everything You need to Know VS Swindon Wildcats
MINI MATCH PREVIEW
Following a difficult weekend against the Peterborough Phantoms, we got back to winning ways on Wednesday night in our midweek away game against the Hull Seahawks – with an impressive 7-2 win! A 0-point weekend for the Knights was very much the opposite of Sunday’s visitors, with the Swindon Wildcats enjoying the spoils of a 4-point weekend against the Sheffield Steeldogs.
Sunday is a massive game, with the Swindon Wildcats looking to keep climbing the table for a higher seeding come playoff time, while we look to stay on top of the league in this very close and intense title race with the MK Lightning and Peterborough Phantoms!
ONES TO WATCH
The Ones to Watch for the Swindon Wildcats is Polish import, and current league leader in points, #89 Tomasz Malasinski.
Tomasz is viewed as one of the top imports in the league, and this season he’s very likely going to have a career high in points, having already scored 74 points in just 35 games, split almost evenly between goals and assists. The ex-Polish international’s previous best season with the Wildcats was 86 points in 51 games, a stat that is almost guaranteed to be broken this season.
The Morley Glass Leeds Knights ones to watch this week is… #91 Jake Witkowski
Jake landed in the UK on Monday afternoon, fresh off the flight from Boston and into a busy week of games for the Leeds Knights! The American-born import started his campaign in the blue and yellow in superb form, almost scoring on several occasions and grabbing multiple assists in Wednesday night’s 7-2 win over the Hull Seahawks!
Witkowski makes his home-debut on Sunday, and will definitely be looking to make an impression on a fast-filling Castle!
