Sheffield Steelers coach Gerad Adams will have a game plan that includes special provision for Hull Stingrays forward Eric Galbraith, tonight.

Steelers entertain Hull at iceSheffield after beating their Yorkshire rivals twice already this month.

But on both of those occasions, Galbraith, a 26-yar-old Canadian, has poached a goal.

Adams said: “He scored a really nice goal against us and obviously has a lot of skill. He plays hard and skates fast, but we will be aware of him.”

The Sheffield coach was pleased with his side’s passing style in the midweek win over Edinburgh.

“It was very creative and also we were very responsibly defensively, there are certainly signs of good co-ordination.

“We are at our best when we play with urgency and we got away from that a little in the middle period. When that happens other teams creep back into the game.

“We go through a bit of a mental lull, sometimes. If I had an answer for that we’d have cracked it by now.”
