A real testing weekend for the Tigers just gone, facing teams at the top and bottom of the table. The Tigers faced the Guidlford Flames saturday night and I doubt you would find many Tigers fans who expected two points from this game. Sadly for the Tigers the table doesnt lie and the Flames ran out 8-3 victors.
The sunday home game against the Sheffield Steeldogs would be a game where the Tigers should pick up a win and two points. Sadly some defensive frailties exposed the Tigers and the Steeldogs were able to claim a 7-5 win.
So a tough weekend for the Tigers, and a weekend that will make the team re-focus and concentrate and ironing out any silly mistakes. The Tigers must start getting results against those sides around them in the table if they want to make a playoff push.
The weekends don't get much easier for Telford, with this weekend (the 23rd/24th October) bringing a trip to Milton Keynes saturday night, before hosting the Phoenix, and their large following to Telford Ice Rink for the first time this season! The ice rink will be rocking sunday night!
