Murrayfield Racers host Dundee Tigers on Sunday aiming to continue their unbeaten record in the Scottish National League (SNL).
The Racers head into the game just four points behind leaders Dundee Comets with three games in hand and a victory this weekend would crank up the pressure on their title rivals.
Tony Hand’s side are chasing success on four fronts in the second half of the season, with their NIHL North Cup campaign now almost complete.
Murrayfield played their penultimate game in that competition last weekend, going down 6-4 at Blackburn Hawks, but they bounced back with a 4-3 league victory over Paisley Pirates the following day.
The Racers have faced the Tigers twice already this season in the group stage of the Stuart Robertson Cup, winning both matches, and defender Josh Quinn is confident they can record another victory this weekend.
“It was unfortunate we didn’t do too great in the NIHL North Cup, but we know it’s a bit of a stepping stone for ourselves and that’s something that we can improve on,” he said.
“I think we have been in good form in Scotland though – the boys have been playing really well as a team,” he said.
“It was a good result last weekend against Paisley, as we know they are a tough team in the league and it was great to get the win over them.
“Hopefully this weekend we can take another win over the Tigers and keep the streak going for the supporters.”
