Glasgow Clan head coach Pete Russell is looking forward to his first ever derby game against the Fife Flyers at Braehead Arena this Friday (7:30pm face-off).
The Clan face the Flyers in Challenge Cup group action with a regulation win and two points imperative for the club to progress into the knock-out stages.
Following Fife’s late equaliser at Kirkcaldy in September, Russell said the club and team are hungry for revenge to start Homecoming off with a victory for the Purple Army.
“It’s been a tough period being on the road away from Braehead, so to say we’re delighted to be back on home ice is an understatement” confirmed Russell.
“We’re fully aware of the importance of this game for the club and for the fanbase, so we can’t wait to get out there on Friday.
“We felt very hard done by after the away game in Fife, it’s a game we really should really have won, so we want this one bad.
“We’re hungry for the win and want to start off our return to Braehead with a important victory, especially against Fife!”
