Sheffield Steeldogs take on Basingstoke Bison on Sunday on the back of a feisty 4-3 win over Milton Keynes, in midweek.

The Bison game (5.30pm) is the last regular season game before the Quarter-final Play-offs take place.

Steeldogs achieved the win despite missing their coach Andre Payette for 55 minutes of the game. Roughing minors within the first three minutes between set the tone and a bad tripping of Kriss Grundmanis, which sent him crashing into the boards, triggered a reaction by Payette which resulted in him taking an early shower.

After that great performance, Steeldogs move onto Swindon away on Saturday followed by the match-up at iceSheffield with legend Steve Moria and his Basingstoke side. Steeldogs were close to beating Bison recently, but had the lead stripped from them in the dying minutes of the game.
