Cardiff Devils came down to earth with a bump on Sunday night at the MEN Arena. They went north on a high following their 3-2 win against their principal rivals, Sheffield Steelers, at the WNIR on Saturday but their inconsistency continued as they fell to another defeat at the hands of Manchester Phoenix.

Phoenix were desperate for a win following their falling popularity with their fans and coach Rick Brebant came out of retirement yet again to help his team with two assists. His Cardiff counterpart Glenn Mulvenna said: "We sat back and let them skate at us. When we are a goal up like that we should be able to shut the opposition down."

The Phoenix forward David Kozier is doubtful for today's match with London Racers after injuring a knee on Sunday.
