Scottish rivalry rekindled

Glasgow Clan face Fife Flyers in a hotly anticipated match-up between two bitter rivals in Scotland.

The two sides have only faced each other once so far this season with the Clan skating out 4-1 victors on that occasion.

This second meeting between the Scottish rivals will see the Flyers on home ice this time as they look for revenge.

It’s a fixture that gets both sets of fans on their feet and backing their team very vocally on the ice.

Form: Fife Flyers

This game will be no different as Fife look to end the three-game losing streak they’ve been on.

They did take Belfast Giants to a shootout just over a week ago but two regulation losses to the Giants and Coventry Blaze sealed a disappointing last weekend.

The side from Fife have shown an ability to win however as they picked up three back-to-back victories before their last three.

With this in mind they could bounce back with the support of their home fans buoying them to triumph.

Form: Glasgow Clan

The Clan come off the back of a demolishing 8-2 loss to Guildford Flames at the weekend.

However, victories over Dundee Stars and first placed Sheffield Steelers will be fresh in their minds.

The Clan have shown all season that they can go toe-to-toe with the big boys but keep slipping up at pivotal moments.

A huge victory over the Steelers will keep them confident facing the current 10th placed side in the Elite League.

What it all means

A victory for the Clan will see them leapfrog the Blaze who have two games in hand on them currently.

If Manchester Storm lose their next game as well Glasgow could solidify their play-off spot even further.

Fife are battling to try not to finish last but it seems inevitable at this point that they won’t make play-offs.

They sit nine points behind eighth placed Dundee who have a game in hand over them.

Of course there’s still plenty of the season left to play for the Flyers so we shouldn’t count them out just yet.
