The British Ice Hockey Association has warned Durham Wasps and Humberside Hawks they face expulsion and a fine if there is a repeat of the scenes that caused the abandonment of Saturday's game in Sunderland, writes Gwilym Lloyd.

The re-match of the British Championship play-off goes ahead in Sunderland tonight. The city council were reluctant to stage it but agreed after assurances from Wasps' owner, Sir John Hall. "Any intimidation which is seen to provoke a situation will be dealt with immediately," the BIHA said.
