Murrayfield Racers aim to maintain their unbeaten run in the Scottish National League when they host Dundee Tigers on Sunday (face-off 6pm).

And it is a busy night for ice hockey elsewhere. Glasgow Clan (4pm) look to boost their play-off chances and increase the agony on Elite League bottom club Milton Keynes Lightning.

Clan’s ambitious coach Peter Russell has guided his men into a top five position in the 11-strong division and over ten points separate the sides.

But Russell, a former playcaller at Milton Keynes, knows that the Buckinghamshire men can be dangerous opposition.

Tim Wallace with 12 goals and 26 points in 41 games is their leading danger man.

Glasgow, however, should have enough firepower to shoot the visitors down with Matt Beca in fifth spot in the overall points charts on 52 points from 16 goals and 36 assists in 41 outings.

Leading marksman Brendan Connolly has 48 points (24 goals and
24 assists in 39 starts) and Scott Pitt is not far behind with 43 points (40 games, 19 goals, 24 assists).

Elsewhere, Dundee Stars complete a weekend double-header against Sheffield Steelers with both clubs vying for a play-off place. Face-off here is 5pm.

Meanwhile, Todd Dutiaume and his Fife Flyers squad celebrated when they prized an overtime win at Manchester Storm on their last visit.

And the experienced Canadian would love to take two points home to Kirkcaldy when they sides meet at The Storm Shelter tonight (5.30pm) as he bids to cling on to a top four slot in the Elite League.

The 4-3 victory was Fife’s third over Storm in four games so far this term but Manchester’s coach, former Glasgow Clan playcaller, Ryan Finnerty, is under pressure to produce as his inconsistent side languish in the bottom three teams in the table and in danger of failing to make the end-of-season play-offs.
