The home side's Scottish opponents will be visiting Belfast for the first time this season, having lost out 3-1 to the Giants at the Fife Ice Arena in September.

A home win on Tuesday night would see the Giants return to the top of the table, from their current spot one point behind the Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers.

It would also move the defending league champions into second place in the Challenge Cup's Group A, one point behind the Braehead Clan with three games in hand.

Fife are currently in second place in Group A, so both teams will be battling it out for a spot in the knockout rounds of the Cup.

The Giants are coming off the back of a double-header weekend against the Steelers with mixed fortunes, having lost out 5-1 on Friday night, but bounced back on Saturday to win 3-0.

Face-off against the Fife Flyers is at 7.30pm on Tuesday, at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.
