The pursuit of Paisley Pirates' Eagles continues this weekend as they head to the Fife Ice Arena for the final test of the SNL's dams .
The Pirates play Kirkcaldy Kestrels in the last four games, Aberdeen Lynx facing the Dundee Comets in the other semifinal, and head coach Ian Turley (above) warned his team that They are facing a difficult task.
"It may have been a little surprising to some that the Kestrels were successful, because after playing with Edinburgh in the first leg in Fife two weeks ago, most people would have thought Caps would end. work their own rink, "said Turley.
"This gives us all the warnings we need for the Kestrels to be on form, if they can go to Edinburgh and win
"They will play in their own rink in front of their own fans, and they will really see their chances – in their position, too.
"We had two huge games against them this year, and we managed to pass both with the points.
"We will have to be at our best if we want to reach the final and we go as league champions, so they have all the incentive they need to overthrow us."
"Everyone is eager to go and we will be determined to prove that we have what we need to see us progress.
"We are determined to finish the season in style rather than moaning.We are back in a fortnight for the final of the Scottish Cup, but that will take care of itself when it's time."
"All that interests us is the Kirkcaldy draw – we lost on penalties at this point last year, and it's a heartbreaking experience that we do not have." I certainly do not want to repeat. "
Kirkcaldy tackles the Pirates game in a dynamic way after seeing the Edinburgh Capitals in the quarterfinals.
The Kestrels drew the local stage 5-5, but produced an excellent performance in the return match to win 5-3 and leave ahead Sean Cochrane eagerly anticipating the event play-off.

"The boys have recently flown to training and we are well prepared for the weekend.
