Have your say

Sheffield Steelers' form and confidence has wobbled a bit of late.

They are back at iceSheffield on Saturday for a crunch EIHL game against Dundee Stars.

So here are five five things you need to know about this big game.

1: Who will play in goal for the Steelers – will Tyler Plante be fit or will back up Brad Day get the start, could it be Josh Unice (stranger things have happened) or will there be a new man between the pipes? Bring back Mike Torchia, that's what we say.

2: Will Marc LeFevbre come back and spoil the party? Yes former Steeler is now the head coach in Dundee and he has had a great start to the season with his Stars side presently top of the Gardiner Confrence.

3: Steelers have already beaten the Stars – it was close, but they can do it again. On Sunday 26th September the Steelers needed an overtime winner from Tyler Mosienko to take home the points in a 6-5 victory.

4: Ice Sheffield – Friend or Foe? Last season the Steelers didn't drop a point in their second rink - "Friend" though in October the Steelers went down to the Edinburgh Capitals in a penalty shoot out thus dropping a point their only home point of the season so far.

5: #Steelersbetterlive - that’s the Steelers hashtag and live is the only way you can watch this game.

Steelers have taken the decision not to broadcast the game on their webcast – so the only way you can watch the game is live.

The club believes it's a must win-cross conference league game and they want iceSheffield rocking.

Around 1,500 orange flags will be handed out to everyone attending, there will be free Zack Fitzgerald photos given out with every ticket and the first 250 kids get a free Steelers A3 poster.

But none of that will cushion the disappointment of a defeat...so the club wants fans to really get behind the again, this weekend.
