This coming weekend the Bracknell Bees start their weekend’s action with the long trip north to Sheffield to take on the Steeldogs (7.30pm faceoff) before returning to The Hive on Sunday to take on their M3 rivals the Basingstoke Bison, 6pm faceoff.
Following a busy festive period which saw the Bees with three home games and one road game over Christmas and New Year the Bees return to more regular weekend action.
On Saturday the Bees head to Sheffield for the second time this season to take on the Steeldogs. On the Bees last trip to Ice Sheffield they returned with two points following a shutout victory over the Steeldogs in mid-week action. Looking to narrow the gap in the fight for the final playoff spot the Bees will be hoping for more of the same but the Steeldogs will prove a tough opposition as on two visits to The Hive already this season they have secured two narrow victories.
Sunday sees the Bees take on the Bison in an M3 local derby at The Hive. The Bison and the Bees have met four times already this season, twice each at The Hive and away in Basingstoke and faced each other the weekend before the festive period. The Bison have won all four encounters so far this season and the Bees are sure to be looking to avenge these defeats and start the New Year on a positive note with a result over their local rivals and with local bragging rights also up for grabs the matchup is sure to be another tight and feisty affairs.
