Telford Tigers eyeing a return to form

Telford Tigers look to end a run of four straight defeats and climb back up the NIHL National Division this weekend.


Tom Watkins’ men have endured a tough couple of weekends and are without a win since October 21 after defeats to MK Lightning, twice, Peterborough Phantoms and Leeds Knights, all above them in the standings.

Tigers, in sixth, are on the road at fourth-placed Bees in Berkshire tonight for a 6.30pm face off.

Bees won a remarkable clash in Telford 7-6 in overtime in September.

And Tigers return to home ice at the town’s ice rink – where they have won three from seven games his season – tomorrow evening for a home tussle against Sheffield Steeldogs (6pm).

As things stand, the Steeldogs sit directly beneath and trail Tigers by just a a single point.
