Centreman Evan McGrath believes his side can build on last Saturday's win over the same opposition, at home.

And while Nottingham will have their home fan base behind them, Steelers will be ready with a game plan to beat a side with no obvious weakness, he says.

"I don't think specifically they have a weakness, but I think we are better when we are skating" said the Canadian forward.

McGrath also complimented the improving form of linemate Anthony DeLuca., saying he was a "big reason" behind several recent wins.
