Game Preview: Spartans v Sting
Sheffield Spartans face local rivals Sutton Sting at Ice Sheffield on Saturday, 16th November, facing off at 7.30pm. It promises to be another exciting encounter with both teams coming together for this NIHL North clash in differing circumstances to our last meeting; which Spartans won 3-0. That result however will have no bearing on this fixture as both teams will be looking to secure the bagging rights as well as two valuable points.
After a slow start to the season, Sting have rediscovered their form which was backed by a 4 point weekend last week when they beat Blackburn 7-6 in the cup & Billingham in the league 3-0. Spartans recent form has been a little inconsistent but showed character to bounce back to winning ways over Telford Titans after a couple of losses to top of the table Solway Sharks. Sutton hope to have their new signings on show whilst Spartans will be hoping their injury concerns have eased which will hopefully see both teams at full strength as they look to build on the start they have made and from which they can kick on from to put pressure on those teams above them in the league. Please remember that the face-off time for this match is 7.30pm.
