Panthers remain grounded - Meyers

Nottingham captain Danny Meyers says no one at the club is getting carried away despite their great start to the season.

The Panthers are a point clear at the top of the Elite League, with Saturday's win at Sheffield marking their first league success in the Steel City since Boxing Day 2005.

Meyers told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We haven't won anything yet and it's a case of keeping our feet on the ground.

"We'll take the credit now, but also take the criticism when it comes our way through the season."

Panthers also picked up their second win in the Challenge Cup at the weekend, winning 4-2 against an injury and suspension-hit Hull Stingrays on Humberside.

"We will not get too high or too low," Meyers added. "You will hear me say that all season long and hopefully that can be a formula for success this year.

"In my first year in Nottingham we had a great start and we also had a great start last year. The key now is to have a good October and November.

"For the last three years we have had a dreadful October and November and that is something we have to correct.

"Hopefully we can use this momentum and instead of getting carried away we can use it as a positive. We don't want to blow a good start."

Panthers are next in action on Wednesday night when they travel to Cardiff in the Challenge Cup (1930 BST).

You can now subscribe to BBC Radio Nottingham's Nottingham Panthers podcast for exclusive news and behind-the-scenes access to the players and characters at the club.
