The Stars were beaten 5-0 at home by Guildford Flames last night after they shipped in two goals in the first and third periods.

A bounce-back performance is needed from Omar Pachas men and this is the first time they have played Fife since January 3 and the Stars have not beaten the Flyers in any of their last three games.

The next instalment of the Tayside Derby will provide another heated and intense fixture that will be tightly contested by both teams, as each club are in dire need of points to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Despite Fife’s success against Dundee, Todd Dutiaume’s men are stuck at the foot of the table and are seven points adrift and face Glasgow at home on Saturday evening.

Back when the auld rivals collided in January, Dundee had taken a late first period lead but soon fell in a deep hole.

The Stars gave up five goals to the Flyers in the middle period and failed to recover in the third, losing the game 6-3.

Stars forward, Spence Dorowicz commented: “We have struggled to come home with points on the road this season, but perhaps our most recent road win will be the spark we need to continue to win on the road and to ensure ourselves a playoff position, and the highest position possible.”

Face-off times for tonight’s match at the Fife Ice Arena is at 6pm.
