Great Britain face Denmark this afternoon at the O2 Arena in Prague in their fourth game at the 2024 World Championship.

GB go into the game on the back of three defeats to the top three seeds in the group, losing to Canada (4-2), Finland (8-0) and Switzerland (3-0)

Denmark have one win from their four matches so far. A 5-1 victory over Austria was followed by defeats by Canada (5-1), Norway (2-0) and Czechia (7-4).

The Danes have been in the top level since 2003 with a best finish of eighth coming in 2010 and 2016.

They are protected from relegation this year as they are co-hosting the 2025 World Championship with Sweden.

Team News
GB have no major injury worries to contend with and so will choose the 22-man matchday roster from a full 25-player squad.

Netminder Ben Bowns is set to make his 75th appearance for his country.
