Coventry Blaze forward Ashley Tait says Great Britain’s two games against Poland next month will be perfect preparation for the upcoming World Championship in Zagreb.
GB take on Poland at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham on Saturday, 9th April (7.00pm) and then the two sides meet in the Skydome in Coventry the following day (5.15pm).
The two games will come in the middle of a training camp for Pete Russell’s side before they fly out to Croatia for the World Championship (Division 1B) from 17th to 23rd April.
Tait said: “Poland are tough opposition and so they will be two games which will be excellent preparation for the World Championship.
“Every time we play Poland we have intense encounters and they will give us a really good test ahead of the trip to Zagreb.
“I like the look of our squad and there is tough competition for the final 23 places.
“The boys came so close to promotion last season in Netherlands and we all want to go one step better this season.
“It is another tough group in Croatia but we have showed we can compete with the best teams at this level.”
