SNL preview: Lynx won’t take Capitals lightly

Aberdeen Lynx travel to face Edinburgh Capitals SNL on Sunday for the second leg of their Scottish Cup tie.

Lynx go into the game full of confidence, after beating the Capitals 14-1 last month.

But the Edinburgh side are expected to field a stronger team and will be out to restore some pride this weekend.

Lynx boss Barry Carnegie said: “I’m hoping that after a weekend off we are ready to finish the job against a tough Edinburgh team.

“Obviously the first leg scoreline is a huge plus for us, but the Caps had a good win last weekend against the Comets and with their Elite League Brits available they will be a totally different proposition.

Last week’s 4-3 victory over the Comets was the Capitals’ first success this season and Head Coach Martin Cingel is hopeful his team can build on that result this Sunday.

“I know it’s going to be very difficult to progress to the next round, it’s almost impossible,” said Cingel.

“We’re playing for pride and we will show that it was just the one flop. It does happen – sometimes you win by ten, sometimes you lose by more than ten, that’s the beauty of the sport.

“We will definitely get ready for this game and we want to obviously restore some pride and we will play the best team and play hard.”
