Nottingham Panthers spurred on by title taunts

Nottingham Panthers forward Robert Lachowicz tells BBC East Midlands Today that constant reminders about the club's failure to win the league title in 57 years will be used as motivation to clinch the crown at Belfast on Friday evening.

Victory will secure the Elite League crown with three games to spare and would be their first title since the club was re-formed in 1980.

"Sometimes it is hard to ignore the chants that are going on," Lachowicz said. "We have to use everything we can to boost our performance and that sort of stuff will do it."
