Peterborough Phantoms and MK Lightning to resume rivalry in ice hockey's National League

  • Video report by ITV News Anglia's Andy Ward

Peterborough Phantoms and MK Lightning will resume their fierce rivalry this weekend when they face each other in the National Ice Hockey League.

The two clubs haven't met in two years after the Lightning had a brief spell in the Elite League - the sport's top tier.

However, financial difficulties meant they decided to drop back into the second tier.

It means the clubs are now back in the same division again, and will play each other for the first time this season on Sunday evening in Peterborough.

The Phantoms have made the better start to the campaign, winning all of their home fixtures so far, while the Lightning currently sit second from bottom in the table.
