Dundee Stars vs Glasgow Clan 

Dundee Ice Arena, Dundee (face off  7pm)

Ticket details: SOLD OUT

Webcast: Dundee Stars TV

Covid guidelines and information: Dundee Ice Arena

The busy week of action concludes on Tayside as Glasgow Clan make the relatively short journey to Dundee Stars and a tough night awaits in Dundee Ice Arena.

The recent Covid disruption that’s swept the league saw Stars placed in protocols not once, but twice and their return to action saw them ease past Manchester Storm 4-1 on Thursday night.

It was only their third game in 32 days because of the disruption, but to return with a win will set them up nicely for the visit of Clan.

Malcolm Cameron are preparing for their fourth game in five days after returning from their own Covid issues, but the lacklustre performance from the last visit will still be in the memory.

Meetings between the Clan and the Stars are rarely one-sided affairs so fans watching, either in the arena or at home, should be entertained by this latest chapter.

With play-off places up for grabs, these two have been jostling around the cut-off line.  Nothing will be settled on this occasion, but it doesn’t mean the points won’t be keenly contested.

PLAYER TO WATCH

#9 Charlie Combs

Dundee Stars’ form may fluctuate from time to time, but whenever there are goals, you’ll find Charlie Combs either among them or having had a hand in them.

He turned pro in March last year and has taken his time to find his feet at pro level and his output for the Stars is reflection of how much he’s grown into this new phase of his career.

He’s Dundee’s top scorer so far, with 29 points from 29 games and his goal on Thursday against Manchester Storm helped set the tone as they went on to win 4-1.

Combs also picked up a goal and an assist when Clan went to Dundee in December so is capable of finding gaps, either for himself or for team-mates and will be a threat.
