Steeldogs coach Greg Wood found his recent plans to challenge title chasing Milton Keynes undone by a rash of illness and injuries that denied him the services of first choice ne minder James Hadfield, experienced D-man Tim Smith along with forwards Macaulay Heywood and Cam Brownley.
A single game weekend should have given Sheffield Steeldogs a good chance of success but losing several players late on left them short benched and out of their depth against a talented Milton Keynes Lightning side, who triumphed 8-3 at iceSheffield.
Roolercoaster season so far for Sheffield Steeldogs
Sheffield Steeldogs’ season has been thoroughly unpredictable so far. Last weekend saw a 3-0 defeat to bottom of the league Bracknell followed by the best win of the year as they defeated the Flames 1-0 in Guildford.
