Rosehill excited by ‘special’ return for Storm

Manchester Storm captain Jay Rosehill says his return from suspension is a little more special because of who their opponents are.

Braehead Clan are the visitors to Silverblades for a home weekend double header, who Rosehill played for last season.

And although his team took victory in a 5-2 visit to Glasgow two weeks ago, refuses to accept the notion they hold a psychological advantage.

“I’m looking forward to coming back,” he said.  “I’ve been away from the game for a little bit and I’ve been champing at the bit to return.

“The fact that it’s Braehead Clan we’re playing makes a bit more special I suppose and gives extra incentive against some old teammates and makes it more fun to come back to.

“It was nice to have a bounce back last week against Milton Keynes and Coventry and we’re hoping to continue that trend.

“We definitely didn’t have the weekend we wanted in Scotland a couple of weeks, after beating Braehead then losing in Edinburgh.

“But I wouldn’t say we hold a psychological edge over the Clan after winning there a couple of weeks ago.  That was then and as we all know, any team can win on any night.

“If one team happened to win last week, it has no bearing on this week, but I’m sure they’ll come to us looking for redemption and we’ll have to play our best game to get the edge.”
