SNL preview: Racers and Sharks aiming to continue impressive early-season form

Murrayfield Racers continue their defence of the Stuart Robertson Cup (SRC) this weekend with fixtures against North Ayrshire Wild and Kilmarnock Thunder.

The Racers comfortably won the reverse matches against both teams and four points from the two games would guarantee their place in the last four of the competition.

Aberdeen Lynx will bid to make it three wins in a row when they host Dundee Tigers in the SRC on Saturday.

Lynx triumphed 2-1 in Dundee at the start of September and will be confident of completing the double this weekend.

Dundee Comets are also in SRC action this weekend as they host Kirkcaldy Kestrels. The two sides fought out a thrilling 4-4 draw at Fife Ice Arena earlier this month and another close match is expected on Sunday.

Solway Sharks will aim to maintain their 100 percent record in the Scottish National League (SNL) as they take on Kilmarnock (A) and Aberdeen (H).

The Sharks have already beaten Belfast Giants (SNL) and Dundee Comets in the league this season and will be eager to extend their lead at the top of the standings.
