Face-off: Belfast Giants Elite League title hopes dented

The Belfast Giants fall to a 2-1 defeat by Braehead Clan to lose ground in the Elite League title race.

After six wins in a row, the Giants side had hoped to keep the pressure on main contenders Cardiff Devils and Sheffield Steelers but slipped up at the SSE Arena on Saturday night.

Giants' coach Derrick Walser described the goals conceded as "mental mistakes" and the defeat leaves his team needing to win the five remaining games and rely on results elsewhere.
