This weekend sees Sheffield Spartans take on the Billingham Stars at Ice Sheffield, facing off at 4.30pm on Saturday 11th January. Spartans need to get back to winning ways to maintain their push for a play-off spot whilst Stars will be looking to bounce back from two defeats last weekend, especially their shock 9-1 home loss to Blackburn. That result alone will see them in determined mood Saturday where it will be hoped from their perspective that their injury crisis has somewhat eased with many players missing. Spartans have also had their own injury problems and will be hoping that the break last weekend will see one or two back to full fitness with the hope that those missing may return.
Although we are still only in January, this game is vital for both teams’ aspirations of success and although defeat would not spell the end of it all for either, it certainly won’t help their cause. So with two important points to play for it promises to be a an exciting game. One thing for sure is that there is only one way to find out so we’ll see you all at Ice Sheffield on Saturday…remember! Face off time is 4.30pm.
