Paul Thompson had bad news for two established Sheffield Steelers forwards tonight.
The coach, forced to drop two imports from his match-day squad in the Play Off semi final first leg, chose Tim Wallace and Matt Marquardt for the axe.
Neither have been dropped before, this season - so it must have been a blow for the pair.
Marquardt scored three points in his last game, at Manchester Storm, so he must have thought he was in with a good shout of playing against Guildford Flames.
Wallace has been a solid performer this season, but his points tally has been disappointing.
Both were also the victim of John Armstrong's return to the team, last weekend after 25 games out with a hand injury.
*Zack Fitzgerald and the now-departed Brady Ramsay have previously been dropped, this season.
