SLOUGH JETS are the only team that have managed to take points from Peterborough Islanders this season after a 3-3 draw on Saturday, writes Ryan Gibbs.

The Jets have had a difficult season following adjustments to their rink and injuries, but they are confident they will not finish bottom.

The Islanders took the lead within two minutes which put Slough on the back foot, but Kirk Evans replied with a goal in the second period.

This was followed up by two goals from Nathan Darmanin to level the scores at 3-3.

Slough head coach Tony Milton believed their performance was awesome. He told the Observer: “We did brilliantly considering the amount of players that were injured. We only had eight guys come to the game including a keeper.

“They were the only points Peterborough have dropped all season. Out of 20 games, they have won 19 and drawn one against us.

“The guys dug deep, reaped their rewards and he fans loved it. It was the best game we’ve had in a while.”

The Jets’ injury woes have been a real issue this season.

Milton explained: “We’ve got three guys with dislocated shoulders, and we struggle to train properly as there’s not enough people in attendance.”

Slough have enjoyed a good run of form at the back end of the season with three wins, a draw and just two losses.

Milton added: “We’ve done so well in the last five games. We’ve caught up with Lee Valley in the league when we expected to just survive and be the whipping boys.

“The target for the season now is not to come last which shows real grit and determination.”

The Jets welcome Lee Valley Lions on Saturday (6:15pm) in the concluding game of the season.
