League action tonight sees Glasgow and Sheffield meet, while in the Continental Cup Belfast Giants meet Ritten Sport looking for another win.
1930 Glasgow Clan vs. Sheffield Steelers (Tickets)
After their heavy loss in Milton Keynes on Wednesday’s live TV game, Glasgow Clan have a quick chance to put that right when they host Sheffield Steelers tonight. The sides are level on 16 points in seventh and eighth in the table respectively, although the Steelers have played four more games. The visitors arrive in Glasgow with four wins in their last five games, while the Clan had won two in a row before losing on Wednesday. The Steelers have a decent record in Glasgow, having won six of the last seven fixtures there.
“It’s going to be a big game – they’ve been flying since they changed coach, and Ben O’Connor coming back gave them a boost as well. We need to respect them and play how we want to, we have every chance of beating them. They’ve had some big wins and will be confident coming to Glasgow.” – Zach Sullivan (Defenceman, Glasgow Clan)
“Glasgow will be looking to put things right after losing so heavily and will want to put in a good performance in front of their own fans. But as long as we’re skating hard and doing what Tom’s been instructing us to do, we should be able to put ourselves into a good position.” Davey Phillips – (Defenceman, Sheffield Steelers)
Belfast got off to a great start last night as they bet Medveščak Zagreb 4-0 to open their Continental Cup campaign. Now their attention turns to Italian side Ritten Sport, who were beaten by GKS Katowice by the same score yesterday afternoon.
