Captains Call To Tigers Supporters
Telford Tigers captain Scott McKenzie has urged the clubâ€™s fans to become â€œa sixth manâ€ as the season enters a crucial phase.
A run of 15 wins in the second half of the campaign has seen Telford become firmly entrenched in the EPLâ€™s mid table positions.
But even after the midweek win over Peterborough Phantoms, McKenzie is aware that his side canâ€™t rest on their laurels.
And he wants the â€˜Tigers Kopâ€™ to play its part – especially during Sundayâ€™s game with league leaders Manchester Phoenix.
He said: â€œEven if we lose a goal early on, we need to fans to stay behind us and be a sixth man on the ice.
â€œThey give us a massive boost, as it can be hard when the other side gets ahead at the start. Thatâ€™s happened a few times in recent weeks, and weâ€™ve been able to make a come back.
â€œAs a squad, we want the fans to bring along friends and family in the next few weeks. We need to pack out the rink, stay focussed and not worry about other sides.
â€œAs long as weâ€™re winning and getting the support of the fans, weâ€™ll be happy with that.â€
