Fife Flyers have waited a long time this season to find a forward line with genuine chemistry - and it seems they have now got one.

The Jordan Fulton, Bobby Chaumont, Matt Reber line has sparked to life in recent weeks and on Sunday the trio were the catalyst behind the win over Hull Stingrays.

Chaumont’s hat-trick of goals, Reber’s hat-trick of assists, and Fulton’s stunning five-point (1+4) performance were key to the 5-3 victory.

“We’ve been playing well together,” Fulton told the Press. “It took us some time to gel, but we’ve really been clicking the last few weeks.

“We got split up on Saturday in Braehaed but they put us right back together on Sunday, and we picked up where we left off.

“The other lines have been playing well too, our D-core has been playing very well, and Kevin Regan gives us a chance to win every night so we’re all clicking.”

Chaumont has taken the limelight with three hat-tricks, and three man of the matches, in his last five matches and Fulton is happy for this line mate to take the glory.

“He’s just a natural goalscorer and Rebs and I just do what we can to set him up,” he said. “Right now, he just seems to be putting everything in.”

Fulton was disappointed with Flyers efforts in Braehead on Saturday but felt they put that right against Hull on Sunday.

“We were pretty disappointed after Saturday - a lot of guys took it pretty hard,” he said.

“On Sunday we were a different team. We came out hard and although Hull battled back, we came out strong at the end and got the win.”

Flyers play four games in the space of the next week starting with the visit of Edinburgh Capitals on Boxing Day.

“This run is huge,” he said. “There’s a lot of conference games coming up and we need those points.

“We’ve played less games than most teams, so we’ve got to take every game one at a time and try to get as many points as we can, especially at home.

“Danny Stewart has been preaching that you can’t lose two conference games in a row. If you lose one, you have to come back the next night and win.”
