Belfast Giants beat Fife Flyers 4-1 in Scotland on Sunday to secure a 8-3 aggregate win in the Elite League play-offs quarter-final.

The Giants won Saturday's first leg 4-2 and increased their advantage when Matt Nickerson netted in the first period.

Ryan Dingle levelled before goals from Blair Riley and Chris Higgins put the visitors 3-1 in front.

Riley struck again in the third quarter as the Giants booked their place in next weekend's play-offs finals.

The Giants will face the Sheffield Steelers in the semi-finals on Saturday at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham.

The two semi-finalists will face-off earlier on Sunday in the Bronze Medal game.
