Fife Flyers get back to their normal routine with back to back games this weekend.

The club has had two blank Sundays in a row, and is keen to step up the pace with the standard two-game schedule, kicking off at home to Hull Stingrays on Saturday, and travelling to Dundee on Sunday.

They go into the action in fine fettle after a comfortable 5-0 win over Edinburgh.

Stingrays head to Fife for the first time minus rugged import Derek Campbell who was sacked after a disgraceful fight continued off the ice. As well as being axed, he was hit by a cumulative 47-game ban.

Flyers may go in to the weekend minus the injured Tim Hartung and Jamie Wilson, while Todd Dutiaume will remain behind the bench.

The coach was pleased with the weekend win over Caps, although both he and assistant, Danny Stewart, saw scope to improve.

‘‘We didn’t play the full 60 minutes,’’ said Dutiaume, ‘‘so there are places we can tighten up.

‘‘Kevin Regan had a great game and it was good to see him get his first shut out, and for me, Stephen Gunn was our MoM - that was the best I have seen him play in the Elite League.’’

Flyers are backing Breast Cancer Awareness Month and have urged fans to turn the rink pink with their clothing when Sheffield Steelers hit town on October 19 as part of a fundraiser.
