Parry points the sole way to win over Sharks

Tigers NIHL chief Jason Parry remains wary of the threat posed by Solway Sharks, ahead of the long trip north to Dumfries on Saturday evening.

The Sharks have struggled to impress this season, having lost eight games out of 14, including a 6-3 defeat in Telford at the start of the year.

Part of the reason for those struggles is the absence of import Martin Cingle, although with former Tigers star Juraj Senko in the line-up, Parry expects a difficult evening.

He said: “Solway have improved recently, and with guys like Senko in the team, they are always going to be a big danger for us. If Cingle ices, they will be even more dangerous.

“Of course I think they would have liked to play better this season, but they’re not losing games by a lot. They’ve got some good players on their team.”

Last weekend saw Telford lose 4-3 to Whitley on Saturday evening, before beating bottom side Sheffield Senators 6-3 on Sunday afternoon.

Parry believes his side will gain confidence from that win over Sheffield, and he expects them to be keen to show their potential against Solway.

He added: “I don’t think beating the bottom side 6-3 will make a huge difference, but the guys should be up for this game anyway.

“That is why we’re in this division, to play in better games against better teams.”

Saturday night’s game, in Dumfries, faces off at 7pm.
