The early evening action in Manchester and Guildford saw the four teams looking to end the week on an exciting note.
Storm lost to Dundee thanks to a Stars goal in the final three minutes, despite taking the lead for most of the game. That extended their winless streak on the road, but Ryan Finnerty’s team have picked up five home wins in the league and become a force to be reckoned with on their own field.
Glasgow has a knack for playing tight at the moment. Three of their four games ended 3-2, including last night’s penalty shootout defeat to Coventry, while they were beaten 4-2 midweek at Guildford. Malcolm Cameron’s side got their first win of the season on the road in Nottingham a week ago, and are looking for two wins in three games away from home in the past seven days.
1800 Guildford Flames vs Sheffield Steelers (Ticket)
It’s a big clash of the top two teams in the Premier Sports Elite League tonight at Spectrum.
Guildford finished top of the table with a midweek win over Glasgow, but were unable to extend their advantage over the Steelers after a crushing defeat to Fife yesterday.
Sheffield fought back for an extra point against Nottingham last night in their group stage final match. The Steelers were without Tanner Eberle, Marc-Oliver Vallerand and Brendan Connolly injured for that game, while Justin Hodgman left early and would be a late decision. Keaton Ellerby serves his second suspension for two games tonight, with Anthony DeLuca suspended indefinitely.
The Flames won in Sheffield when these teams met for the first time this season, however the Steelers opted for both a regulation and extra time victory at Guildford since then to balance the sides in favor of the team. surname.
