IPSWICH Witches skipper Danny King has called for ‘at least a 10-point lead’ from tonight’s Elite League KO Cup clash with Wolverhampton at Foxhall Stadium.

King is confident the Witches can see off Wolves and is demanding the utmost effort from his team-mates to build up a healthy advantage to take to Monmore Green on Monday night.

“We want at least a 10-point lead,” King said.

“And I think we are more than capable of doing that. In fact, if we get our act together, I think we can hammer them.
