The Bradford Bulldogs head back to the National Ice Centre to face the Nottingham Lions in their fourth and final match-up of the 2014/15 Laidler D2 season.

In what will be the Lions' final game of 2014, Matt Bradbury will be looking to lead his men back to winning ways after an agonising, last-minute 2-1 defeat to the Telford Tigers last Sunday, which curtailed the Lions winning streak at three. It was against the Bulldogs that streak originated and Nottingham will be more than happy for history to repeat itself this time around.

The season's previous encounters against the Bulldogs have all gone in the Pride's favour with three dominant victories over the struggling Yorkshire outfit. The Bulldogs have no wins on the season and once again enter the Lions’ den as firm underdogs.

Sunday's loss to Telford, saw coach Bradbury without high scoring forwards Ivo Dmitrijevs and Dan Hazeldine as well as defencemen Adam Andrews and Jamie Hovell. A return from any or all of them would further tip the odds in Nottingham's favour but d-man Craig Wallis looks unlikely to feature, after finding himself on the wrong end of an illegal hit from a Tigers player last weekend.


Face off at the NIC is 7.30pm and ticket details for your festive, Sunday hockey fix are available by clicking here.
