EDINBURGH Capitals lost 5-2 the last time Braehead Clan came to Murrayfield on Elite League business and coach Michal Dobron does not want a repeat.

It’s only the second meeting between the pair in the Elite League so far this season and Clan’s British-born forward Craig Peacock believes his club are on the up.

Dobron aims to test that claim at Murrayfield tonight (SUNDAY, 6pm) but Peacock, a Peterborough-born Great Britain international, who arrived in Glasgow in the close season after eight years at Belfast Giants, eyes two points when they motor along the M8 to Murrayfield.
Peacock and his colleagues regularly train at the Edinburgh rink when Braehead is unavailable and know it well.

And the 28-year-old is determined to use that local knowledge to help Clan battle their way up the table.

The Glasgow outfit return to their home rink next week after being on the road for several weeks due to other events at Braehead.

It’s been a difficult spell but the player added: “We’ve put in some really good performances.

“We’ve been unlucky not to come away with more points than we have.
“Our team is definitely going in the right direction.”

Elsewhere, Fife Flyers make their first visit of the season to Nottingham Panthers (4pm) and are boosted by a 4-1 victory at The Fife Ice Arena earlier this season.

It could be ideal time to visit as Panthers have been in free-fall of late, losing their last six league games.

Dundee Stars, meanwhile, entertain Manchester Storm, a side they edged 3-2 on their last visit.

And Dundee also won 3-2 after penalty shots on a recent visit to The Storm Shelter.
