The Lions were again unfortunate last weekend going down 3-1 to the Coventry Blaze.

Head Coach Matt Bradbury “Performances are improving – some players are getting a little frustrated, however its key that we maintain our intensity and focus. We are dominating and outshooting teams – we need to be more clinical in front of goal and remain patient at the same time too. It shouldn’t then belong before things fall into place and we start to pick up points both at home and on the road.”

The Lions face the long trip to Whitley Bay this Sunday to face last years league and play off champions. “We’re looking forward to the trip and realise that his hard to dig out points up there, having said that the pressure is firmly on Whitley as they have high expectations. We’ll keep chipping away, play our normal game – you never know we might even get a lucky bounce or two!”

Defenceman Ciaran Quinn got the only goal of the night and picked up the man of the match too.
