Aspray Glasgow West sponsored Glasgow Clan forward Jamie Crooks sees no reason why the team can’t turn around their form in Guildford on Tuesday.
Clan have only one win in seven previous visits as they head to Surrey to take on Paul Dixon’s men, who are second in the Premier Sports Elite League table.
But Crooks, who will come up against his old team at the Spectrum, believes he and the rest of the team can take some inspiration from Sunday’s 3-2 win at Nottingham Panthers.
“It’s going to be exciting to go back and I’ve been looking forward to it for a while now,” he said. “It’ll be different, being on the other side, but it’ll be nice to see some old faces too.
“We know about the record in Guildford, but we were also aware we hadn’t won too many times in Nottingham and we got the result there so I see no reason why we can’t go and do it again.
“Guildford are a team that have a lot of speed and skill and play really well at home. It’s a tough place to visit and it could be tough, but we’re raring to go now and hopefully we can build on Sunday.”
Crooks got his first of the season in Sunday’s victory as Malcolm Cameron’s side picked up their maiden win of the campaign.
The former Guildford man admitted it was good to get on the board and believed it helped turn the tide in Clan’s favour after going 2-0 down.
“It felt good to get first one out the way,” Crooks added. “It was a gritty kinda goal after a good play by my line mates and it was good to get it at the time when we were two down and cut their lead in half.
“It calmed us all down a bit and the second period hadn’t been going well so it certainly helped to turn things around.
“We came out hard in the this, got one off the bat and Dyson was able to score one later on to put us ahead and the boys were happy to get the win. The bus was certainly a happier place coming home.”
