Match Night Live
Cardiff Devils 8 - 0 Basingstoke Bison

Welcome from me OJ to MNL as our beloved DEVILS take on the BISON in the British Knock Out Cup 1st leg

Lets hope we have as successful a night as last night in Sheffield

The hits on MNL this week have been out ofr this world, on Thurday eving for the game in Belfast we had no fewer than 602 unique (different) hits.

Last night the number of hits got to anincredible 632 before we stopped counting.

Thanks to everyone for the kind remarks about us on the Forum.

Apparently there were 350 Devils fans at Sheffield last night

Fans are slow getting to the Tent tonight maybe some of the 350 haven't arrived back in Cardiff yet

Remember I would like to hear from any browsers out there email me at
