Shields says it's time for excuses to end

Belfast Giants player Colin Shields says it is time for the excuses to stop as the Belfast Giants look to break a run of five straight defeats.

The Giants went down 5-4 to the Sheffield Steelers after overtime, a result which Shields says was "frustrating".

"I've been here for seven years and I've never had a losing streak like this - we're doing everything we can to try and get out of it.

Losing to a team in that position in the league is an unacceptable loss. We have to go back to basics and look at short-term goals."
