Saturday night saw their first return to the Odyssey Arena in three games and the Belfast side were obviously keen to rack up some goals in front of the home fans.

It took less than 30 seconds for the Giants' top scorer, Robert Dowd, to open his account.

And goals two and three were slotted home in quick succession, courtesy of Ryan Crane and Paul Deniset, before Craig Peacock added a fourth.

Despite the visitors being dominated throughout the first period, the spirits of the small but vocal travelling support didn't seem to be dampened.

While the Clan were coming off the back of a home defeat against Cardiff on Friday night, they had bounced back from going four goals down to only narrowly miss out 4-3.

But there was to be no comeback this time - despite Braehead managing to at least get on the score sheet in the second period, with their top scorer Jade Galbraith answering a fifth goal from the Giants and Jeff Mason.

There were some big saves pulled off at each end of the ice throughout the second and third periods, with the only remaining goal of the game coming from the Giants.

Dowd added a second goal to his personal tally early in the final period, before his side eventually ran out 6-1 winners - with Giants' netminder Stephen Murphy earning the man of the match accolade.

The result keeps the Giants in a strong position going into the final games of the season.
