Stephen Wallace hits the post on a frustrating night for Phoenix

Manchester Phoenix suffered their first home defeat of the season, losing 4-3 in overtime to Slough Jets.

James Neil, Juraj Faith, Slava Koulikov scored Phoenix's goals, but Dan Davies slotted home in overtime for the win.

Player-coach Tony Hand said: "Sometimes you just don't get the bounces. We out shot the Jets and hit the pipes a few times, but it just wasn't our night.

"It was a great game and Slough are a tough side. We'll regroup and get our campaign back on track next weekend."
