The last time these two sides met, the Flyers had just gone top of the Elite League and were brought back to earth by a crushing 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Devils.
This time they meet under somewhat different circumstances. The Devils have lost their last two home games in all competitions, while the Flyers have only won two of their last five although beating Coventry last time out has them second. Unfortunately for the Flyers, their record in Cardiff isn’t so good – since January 2015, they’ve won on only one of their 11 visits.
“This is a crucial game for us. After a very frustrating weekend, it’s back to work and I think the guys will be happy to have a midweek game to bounce back. We’ve seen how good this team can be this season but we really struggled this weekend – that’s sports though. You’re not going to win all the games and I think the most important thing is how we respond and that starts with our game against Fife, who are a very good team so it definitely won’t be easy.” – Andrew Lord (Head Coach, Cardiff Devils)
“On our last trip to Cardiff we felt we did not give a great account of ourselves. Tonight we aim to compete and remain engaged for 60 minutes against a strong Cardiff side who have shown a touch of vulnerability over the past week.” – Todd Dutiaume (Head Coach, Fife Flyers)
