Belfast Giants prepare to face Fife and Sheffield

The Belfast Giants will be hoping to extend their four-point lead at the top of the Elite League when they face the Fife Flyers and Sheffield Steelers this weekend.

Friday night's game at home to one-from-bottom Fife is a combined league and Challenge Cup clash.

Then on Saturday, a big crowd is expected as title rivals Sheffield Steelers, under former Giants coach Doug Christiansen, visit Belfast's Odyssey Arena.
