Morgs looking forward to the weekend

This weekend the Bradfield Brewery Sheffield Steeldogs have two home games with Leeds visiting on Friday night and Telford on Sunday.

For Coach Ben Morgan, this is a chance to get back on the right track after a disappointing weekend. What recent results have shown is the level of competitiveness that exist across the new look National Division;

“It’s fantastic how even the league is - there are so many unexpected results! I’ve said to lots of people that it’ll will take a good while to really see the form across the league, probably late November maybe even into December. I wouldn’t be surprised if the eventual champions lose 10 games at the very least.

“The league is so much closer top to bottom than the old EPL and games will be lost by everyone - as we have already seen. There’s such excitement, with no real favourites on any given night and teams can take four or two points or no points from a weekend. It’s about making sure you keep working if you lose, because the next weekend is a fresh opportunity and that how we approach this weekend. Maximum points and I think we are completely back on track. “We get to put things right on Friday night against a Leeds team that has seen performances and results picking up, which means better hockey, more entertainment for the fans to come and watch. I’ll be making it clear to the boys that this is not the same team that we played back in game one. They’ve made some changes and they’re getting better week on week. We will be doing a lot of work in training this week, potential changes to lines, to units, so a lot of work going on to be ready for matches.”

The Leeds line-up has plenty of familiar faces – and a new one has joined them recently, Liam Charnock, with the former Steeldog now a Chief. Ben expects it to make it a special night; “There are lots of links with the Dogs and with previous Sheffield teams, guys that have played out of iceSheffield in the past so I’m sure there’ll be guys who see it as a bit of a homecoming. It’ll be nice for Charns and a nice chance for us to thank him for his years of service to the club. Ultimately though it’s another game, another chance to get a win and two points to take us back to where we want to be.”

Join Ben and the team this weekend!
