Manchester Storm and Nottingham Panthers have already met twice this season. Saturday 8th September saw Storm away at the NIC, where they played a well fought game,  short-benched, narrowly losing by just one goal. The following day, Panthers visited the Storm Shelter, taking the two points home. Tonight sees the two teams in midweek action, with the last two being highly competitive, and this time for a Challenge Cup game, it’s not one to be missed!
