The Coventry ENL Blaze produced a thrilling comeback yesterday, scoring six unanswered goals against the Blackburn Hawks after being 4-0 behind with thirty minutes gone.

That 6-4 victory secured Coventry’s place in Division 1 next season and condemned the Lions to a two-legged play-off tie against their Nottinghamshire neighbours, Sutton Sting, who will finish as runners-up in Division 2 behind Champions, Solway Sharks.

The winner over the two legs will claim their place in Division 1 next season whilst the loser will be playing Division 2 hockey come September.

The Sting are based at the Lammas Leisure Centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield, although they play all their home games at Ice Sheffield as their own rink is too small for senior hockey.

All the details of the fixtures are still to be confirmed so be sure to keep an eye on nottinghamlions.co.uk or our official Twitter feed for details of both fixtures once they’re announced in what should be an eye-catching battle for all Nottinghamshire-based hockey fans.
