STEELDOGS - joint second in the English Premier League - hope to bring some points back to Sheffield from two weekend away games.
Dogs go to Milton Keynes tomorrow and Telford on Sunday. For the fans it’s a pity both games are away as last Saturday’s 4-1 win over MK turned into a super event, with fans donating 130 teddies to The Children’s Hospital.
At MK, on Saturday, retribution is likely in this cup and league game as MK are unhappy at being beaten (twice in a row) by a team they have usually dominated and one who currently sit above them in both tables.
Dogs will hope lightning can strike in their favour for the third consecutive time, Yet beating MK on their ice is a difficult task and it is likely to be another physical encounter.
The following day Dogs travel to Shropshire to take on last-placed Telford Tigers. Last time, Dogs fought back to win 7-5 after being behind for most of the game. Tigers might be short-benched at present, having lost players to injury and the Elite League, but they can’t be taken lightly.
Steeldogs will be back at home on December 4 to face Slough Jets, having played them away the night before.
