PANTHERS READY TO SHAKE OFF DEFEAT

The GMB Nottingham Panthers squad was taking time-out today as they start their preparations for another big week and big weekend ahead.

Panthers have a sponsors meet and greet event this week and for once there's no mid-week game action BUT the players are itching to get back to winning ways after a disapppointing performance in Cardiff.

Said assistant coach Rick Strachan today :"It wasn't a great showing, for sure but we;ve played some great hockey this year and we've played a lot of games too. Saturday was a long haul and we deserved that one, we dominated the Capitals, but we never got going in Wales.

"Other results were good to us though and we're still very much right in the mix on all fronts. Cardiff's bosses wanted a reaction on Sunday after they were beaten 24 hours earlier, now its our turn to get a reaction from a team that we know can do a lot better that we showed in Cardiff."
