Such was the ease of the win over 15-skater Edinburgh, who are bottom of the league, that he couldn't even make an accurate assessment of how well John Armstrong has recovered, on his return from injury.

Thompson said his team will be looking to win at Manchester, as they try to end as high up the League as possible.
