19 games ahead in Week 19
We're all set for one of the busiest weeks of the season so far.
Week 19 brings 19 games across the next seven days as we move into a new year and decade.
The action begins on Monday night with Dundee heading to Belfast - the Stars have won on two of their three visits to the SSE Arean so far this season. New Year's Eve sees Scottish hostilities between Glasgow and Fife resumed, Cardiff heading to Coventry, and the live FreeSports game between Nottingham and Sheffield.
Just 24 hours later, Sheffield and Nottingham together with Cardiff and Coventry do it all again in the reverse fixtures - the Top 4 may have undergone some changes after these back to back games involving three of them. Later on Wednesday evening Manchester and Guildford both look to get their first wins since before Christmas. Manchester head down to Guildford a day later, with Dundee welcoming Belfast to Tayside earlier 2 January.
Then it's all systems go for weekend hockey again with a full schedule of games across both days. On Saturday, Sheffield Host Guildford, while Dundee are in Nottingham. Manchester are back at home against Cardiff with Coventry heading to Belfast for a double header weekend. The final game of the night sees Glasgow head over to Fife.
Sunday brings part two of Belfast and Coventry's series, while Dundee continues their road trip south of the border in Guildford. Nottingham make the short trip up to Manchester fo the Storm's second home game in as many nights, while Glasgow welcome Sheffield to Braehead. The final action of the day sees Fife make the long journey down to Cardiff.
