SLOUGH Jets head coach Lukas Smital is confident his side are heading in the right direction after a sixth successive win this season, writes Rob Stevens.

The Jets beat Cardiff Fire 12-0 in the Slough Ice Arena on Saturday to move up to third position in the National Ice Hockey League South Two table.

Sean Norris scored five times in the win with Samuel Talbot bagging a brace plus further goals from Liam Underdown, Luke Dreelan, Smital, Liam Poulson and Ryan Handisides.

Smital told the Observer: "It was a good result and overall performance. We played really well at both ends of the ice and dictated for the whole 60 minutes.

"It's never comfortable because you still have to battle and play hard, but we were just clinical and executed our gameplan really well. We controlled the whole game.

"It was a different type of performance but I wouldn't say it was our best this season. It's hard to tell because we're still growing as a team and there's more to give.

"We're definitely heading in the right direction and it was a surprising result last weekend.

"However, the way we finished the game the week before and how we started on Saturday, it's good to see the progress.

"We're reaching our potential and hopefully we can carry that into the next two games."

Slough welcome Invicta to the Slough Ice Arena this Saturday (5.45pm), before Bristol Pitbulls make the journey on Saturday 10th November.

Smital commented: "I remember than Invicta beat us at their place last season but we're a different team this year.

"All games are different in this league and we will definitely take nothing for granted. We will definitely not underestimate anyone but we're capable of winning if we play to our ability."
