Tigers take on Pirates at Telford Ice Rink at 5.30pm, following on from consecutive losses which saw them drop to third in NIHL the North 1 (Moralee) table, and head to Whitley Warriors tomorrow.

They were beaten 4-1 by top-of-the-table Sheffield Steeldogs and then thrashed 5-1 in a reverse clash against the Pirates last weekend.

Tigers also bowed out of the NIHL National Cup at the semi-final stage in midweek after a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Swindon Wildcats (8-4 on aggregate).

Head coach Tom Watkins said: “We’ve got to come out and get a win.

“The goals we’ve been conceding have been from individual errors.

“They have cost us big time. We’ve just to make sure we eradicate those mistakes and stick to the strategy.”
