Super Six from leaders Belfast

Belfast recorded a sixth successive Elite League win on Thursday as they beat Braehead 4-1.

The Giants are now nine points clear of the second-placed Clan, who were left in no doubt who the team to beat are this season.

Braehead led on the night through Matt Towe, but Jeffrey Swaz equalised and then Dustin Whitecotton and Evan Cheverie put the Northern Irish side ahead.

Craig Peacock made it four to add further gloss ahead of a return meeting between the two on Sunday.
