The sides sit fourth and fifth respectively in the standings so far, separated by just a point. The Flames have won their last two games straight, while the Giants have three in a row going into tonight by a combined score of 14-5.
“We need to build on our momentum from the weekend. We are right in the thick of a tough period for ourselves with six games in the space of ten days. There were some tired bodies out there on Sunday which made the three wins in-a-row even more impressive,” said Giants Head Coach Adam Keefe. “Guildford are a talented team who caused us problems last season and they have recruited well yet again. Though for Wednesday I want our guys to concentrate on ourselves, focus on the hard work and enjoy playing in front of our home fans at the SSE.”
The Flames are aware of the threat posed by the Giants, but are coming in off the back of some good wins themselves. “We know Belfast are heading into the game on the back of a couple of wins and so are we so you have two teams who are going to be feeling confident,” explained Head Coach Paul Dixon. ” We felt really good about our last weekend against Dundee, especially Sunday where we put in a very good effort for the whole stretch of time. Belfast are always a deep and talented team and they are going to present a real challenge, but a challenge we are looking forward to. We played well there last season, and we are expecting to be on good form Wednesday.”
You can watch this game live tonight on Freesports from 7pm, with faceoff at 7:30.
