League Title Chasers Provide Weekend Contest

AWAY GAME: Guildford Flames v Telford Tigers, Saturday 15th February 6:00pmHOME GAME: Telford Tigers v Manchester Phoenix, Sunday 16th February 5:30pm, Telford Ice Rink - ARRIVE EARLY, BUMPER CROWD EXPECTED!Telford Tigers coach Tom Watkins has upped the pressure on Guildford Flames and Manchester Phoenix ahead of this weekend’s mouthwatering series of games.

A trip to Surrey awaits Watkins’ men on Saturday, before a clash with league leaders Manchester at Telford Ice Rink on Sunday (5.30pm).

Both opponents are embroiled in a three-way fight with Basingstoke for the overall EPL title, with the Phoenix narrowly ahead on points.

That places extra pressure on those sides this weekend – something which Watkins expects will work in his side’s favour.

He said: “Both teams are looking at the league differently from us. They’re going for the league championship, which obviously creates a lot of pressure.

“That’s not to say that we won’t be going for everything we can possibly get from the games, but it means the pressure could start to tell on our opponents.”
