  13. Ice hockey: Title run-in starts for Tigers

    The Telford Tigers travel to Guildford Flames this weekend, knowing that any slip-up could let Milton Keynes Lightning back into the title-race.

    They hold a 10-point lead at the top of the EPL table at the moment, but face their rivals on the final game of the season and the Lightning have two games in hand.

    The Tigers have eight games left this season, spread over the next six weeks, which means there will be some weekends when they only have one game.

    Five wins would guarantee them the title.

    Quote Message: We are used to playing Saturday and Sunday through the season, so it will be nice for the guys to spend some weekend time with their families or girlfriends. Apart from Christmas, I think it is the first time since the start of the season in September that we’ve had that." from Tom Watkins Telford Tigers head coach
