Sheffield Steelers coach frustrated after 1D intervention

Sheffield Steelers head coach Paul Thompson is left frustrated after the rescheduling of a One Direction concert leads to the postponement of Friday's away game against Belfast Giants.

The Steelers will still travel to Belfast on Friday because they have a further game against Belfast at the SSE Arena on Saturday evening.

"We miss a day of practice and a quality day of practice at that," said Thompson.

"But the people that I really feel sorry for are the fans who have outlaid a lot of money for the trip thinking that they were going to see two games."
