Belfast Giants winger Bobby Farnham insists the team have to keep sticking to their process and trusting it will work despite suffering back-to-back shut-outs at home.

The Giants drew a blank against the Sheffield Steelers last Saturday before suffering the same fate in their Challenge Cup quarter-final first leg against the Cardiff Devils on Wednesday.

In total, the Giants have failed to score a goal in just over 131 minutes of action, and they head to the Dundee Ice Arena to take on the Stars tonight (face-off 7.30pm) hoping to break that wretched run in front of goal.

"You've got to find ways to put the puck in the net. That's something that's popped up for us throughout the year," admits Farnham.

"That's on us. You have to win games regardless. We've just to stick with the process and find ways to score goals.

"There's still a lot of confidence. I've never doubted that about our locker room this season, so that's always positive. I think we'll get back on the horse against Dundee."

The Giants' offensive struggles have been well documented this season, with the side ranking seventh in the Elite League in average goals per game (2.95).

However, there is a frustration within the locker room that their good offensive play against the Devils wasn't rewarded with a goal, and that hurt will be taken into tonight against Dundee.

"We did a lot of good things (against Cardiff) that we can take into Dundee. That said, we need to take this frustration that we're feeling from our lack of finishing out on the Stars," adds head coach Adam Keefe.

"Go out there and put in another solid performance and hopefully get rewarded for that.

"If not then we need to keep sticking to the process until we do, and sometimes that takes an ugly, dirty goal to do so.

"That's all we can do."
