Paul Thompson says tonight's 5-2 win over Guildford Flames has put Sheffield Steelers in a good position to qualify for the Play Off semi finals.

But the team boss played down his own role in the dramatic win.

Steelers were trailing and couldn't find the net on a 5-on-3 Power Play at the Arena this evening.

Coach Thompson called a Time Out handed out his instructions on a set-play and Robert Dowd equalised at 2-2 at 51;33.

It was a game changer with Sheffield scoring two more in the remaining minutes to take a three-goal advantage for the second leg of the semi final in Surrey tomorrow.
