Spartans face two contrasting games this weekend but the intention & aim for both games will be exactly the same…to win!
On Saturday Spartans travel to Dumfries to face title chasing Solway Sharks & will do so in determined mood after last weekend’s narrow loss to Sharks at Ice Sheffield. The lads were disappointed with certain aspects of their game despite a decent performance, gifting chances that ultimately lead to the defeat. They have been working hard in training to address those issues knowing that if they can they have a good chance of taking something from what will be a very difficult game. Face off in Solway is 7.00pm.
Bottom of the table Telford Titans are the opposition on Sunday 10th November at Ice Sheffield, facing of at 4.30pm. Spartans can’t afford to take anything for granted against Titans, they like playing at Ice Sheffield & have on several occasions sprung a surprise result against us so they need treating with respect & shouldn’t be taken too lightly.
Spartans know that on their day they are capable of beating anyone in this league but it’s in our own hands, we need to stay focused & eradicate silly mistakes from our game. If we can manage that then it could be a 4-point weekend which is precisely what we are wanting from this weekend.
If you need a hockey fix this Sunday, more NIHL action is available as Senators take on a very good Deeside Dragons prior to the Spartans game, facing off at 1.30pm.
