Danny Stewart’s looking for two Newcastle Vipers wins

Have your say

NEWCASTLE Vipers’ morale is high going into this weekend’s vital Elite League double header.

Danny Stewart’s men will be confident of beating struggling Edinburgh Capitals at Whitley Bay tonight (7pm), but their play-off ambitions face a crucial clash at rivals Dundee Stars tomorrow.

Defenceman Kyle Sibley admitted: “After last Sunday’s win we have a pretty good feeling in the locker room right now and all the guys are confident heading into this weekend.”

On tonight’s match, he added: “Both teams are short on players, so I see it being a very competitive and tight game. Being so short bodied, it’s important that each guy shows up ready to play.

“Two wins this weekend would put us right back in the mix of things for that last play-off spot.”
