Davis disappointed by Raiders reverse
London Raiders captain Tom Davis was extremely disappointed by his sideâ€™s National League loss against Bracknell at the weekend.
Jakub Kostelanskyâ€™s powerplay goal cancelled out JJ Pitchleyâ€™s opening goal for the visitors, with Grant Taylor putting Raiders ahead in the second period.
Former Raider Pitchley got Hornets back on terms soon after, but Alan Lack gave the hosts a 3-2 lead at the 40-minute mark when tipping in from close range as the buzzer sounded.
But having taken seven points from a possible 10 in their previous five outings, to raise hopes of a play-off place, Raiders could not hold onto their advantage as Daniel Hughes struck twice in the final session for a 4-3 Bracknell victory.
Davis said: â€œBracknell wasnâ€™t a great weekend for us. On the night we could have been the far better team, but we didnâ€™t show up as a team.
â€œBracknell are a team not to be taken lightly as they will punish you.â€
Raiders travel to the Isle of Wight this weekend to take on their namesakes, who beat leaders Chelmsford 4-0 last weekend before it was confirmed their Ryde Arena was to close next month.
Davis misses the trip himself, but wishes his team-mates well, adding: â€œThis weekend Iâ€™m off to New York with the family and fiancÃ©.
â€œI should really be on the Isle of Wight, but everyone deserves a mid-season holiday. After all it has been a rocky season.
â€œBut my dad and I will wish all the boys the best of luck and to bring the two points home.â€
