A Wild trip into the Lion’s Den

Widnes Wild head into this weekend’s away game with the Nottingham Lions looking to reap revenge after their defeat to the Lions last weekend playing their only game of the weekend away at National Ice Centre on Sunday (19:30 face off).

BAN_6748Last weekend when these two teams faced each other the Lions snatched the victory with two dramatic late goals to gain a 4-2 result, which leaves Lions still sitting top five points ahead of second place Deeside Dragons in the league.

This leaves Wild sitting in third with eight points on the league table just one point above Hull Jets and equal on points with Blackburn Eagles.

Clashes between the Wild and the Lions are always a very cut-throat affair and Wild head coach Scott Mckenzie is looking forward to the challenge;

“This weekend won’t see us make too many changes. I think if anything we will try and cut down our mistakes and make it more difficult for them.”

“Overall I don’t think we played badly. I just think that we gave them goals they didn’t earn.” the Scotsman commented.

If you can’t make the trip to the game, then don’t forget the Wild’s official Twitter account @widneswild will keep you informed with score and play by play updates.

Widnes are back in action at the Silver Blades on Sunday 1st November when Wild take on the Bradford Bulldogs for the second match up this season. Ticket prices for the home game are £6 for adults and £3 for children.
