The Bracknell Bees are in action at The Hive again this Saturday evening as they welcome the Hull Pirates to The Hive for the first for a 6pm faceoff. On Sunday the Bees will be making the trip up to Peterborough to take on the Peterborough Phantoms, 5.30pm faceoff.
After a disappointing weekend last time, which included a narrow loss to the Peterborough Phantoms and a night to forget down the road at local rivals Guildford, the Bees will be looking to get things back on track and get back to their previous couple of weeks form.
Saturday at The Hive sees the first visit of the season to The Hive of the Hull Pirates. The Pirates picked up a home win over the Basingstoke Bison last Sunday having lost out on the road to Milton Keynes the previous evening. Currently sitting third in the league the Pirates have had a good start to the season and have turned a few heads with their early form. The sides have met once this season already with the Pirates taking to points for a 4-1 win and the Bees will be looking to avenge that defeat and looking to pick up points at home on Saturday.
The Bees make the trip north to face the Peterborough Phantoms on Sunday and with the sides having only met last weekend, at The Hive, the Bees will be looking to improve on the narrow loss that night. As well as the result over the Bees the Phantoms handed a big loss to the Manchester Phoenix last Sunday to seal themselves a four point weekend. Things will not be easy for the Bees as the Phantoms hoodoo and run of results against them continues – the team will however be looking to finally break that curse on Sunday.
