INVICTA DYNAMOS head coach Kevin Parrish believes the ice hockey club’s supporters will have an important role to play as his side approach the business end of the season.
Mos moved to the top of the National Ice Hockey League (South B) with a 4-0 win over Streatham on Sunday.
The club now know exactly what they have to do because the English League’s play-off structure has been officially released.
The top two teams from each of the southern leagues will play a round-robin and then the winner will face the winner of the northern section at Coventry.
Parrish said: “The fans will play a massive role. The play-off games are all about the crowds.
“After the Streatham game a few supporters came up and said to me that the league is ours.
“I did hear some chants of champions but I don’t like that. We have still got a job to do.”
Mos travel to third-placed Bracknell Hornets tomorrow (Saturday) and Parrish expects a tough game.
He said: “I think Bracknell have probably lost too many games but they are still going to be fighting for a play-off spot. If we or Streatham mess up then they can gain points on us.
“It’s an important game and without Tomas it is going to be difficult. But we have got a big enough squad to deal with it.”
The Dynamos return to the Gillingham Ice Bowl for an ENIHL Cup game against Basingstoke Buffalo on Sunday.
