A second game in two days is tough for any team to have to endure, but when you’re up against one of the favourites for the league and one of the form teams, it can be a little more difficult.
Cardiff Devils are the opponents and believe it or not, it’s only been just over three weeks since Jarrod Skalde brought his men to Glasgow where they claimed a 5-2 win.
It was a performance that left Clan coach Malcolm Cameron greatly frustrated and after getting rid of any cobwebs against Manchester on Tuesday, they’ll feel looser for this one.
Wins against the Devils can be hard to come by, especially when they hit their stride, but there’s nothing to fear and the home players will fancy their chances.
The hectic run continues for the Clan and it promises to be a fascinating contest. Clan showed they could compete in the last meeting, but need to see the job through if they are to be successful. In football parlance, “we go again.”

THE SEASON SO FAR
Sun 19/12 Glasgow Clan 2 Cardiff Devils 5
PLAYER TO WATCH
#96 Cole Sanford
Sanford has come into Cardiff and has impressed with his physicality, his quickness and ability to find team-mates in the key areas.
The 26-year-old is just under a point a game, with 23 points in 24 in league play so far this season and his name tends to crop up quite a lot when Devils are on the offence.
The fact he picked up a goal and two assists on his last visit to Glasgow should serve as a gentle reminder of the kind of the damage Sanford can do on any given night.
His link up play is a big factor in Cardiff’s offensive lines and will no doubt be given the sort of role that will make him a key threat to the home team in this game.
