This coming weekend the Bracknell Bees start their weekend’s action with a Saturday home game at The Hive against the league leading Telford Tigers (6pm) before making the long trip north to Hull to take on the high flying Pirates (5.30pm faceoff).
The table topping Tigers sit seven points clear of the second placed Milton Keynes Lightning and have lost only one game in their last nine outings so their visit to The Hive on Saturday is sure to be a tough task for the Bees, especially with the injury list growing of late in Bracknell. Despite a number of players leaving and new players joining the Tigers have continued on their quest for the EPIHL league title and an overtime win in Milton Keynes and a heavy defeat of the Swindon Wildcats last weekend started their 2017 with a bang. The Bees have taken on the Shropshire side twice this season already, once at The Hive and once in Telford, and the Tigers have won both contests so the Bees will be looking to avenge these defeats in Saturdays match up.
Another tough task faces the Bees on Sunday as they make the long trip north to take on the Hull Pirates. The Hull side sit fifth in the league table at present and have four wins from their last six games. The Bees travelled to Hull back in November where the home side ran out winners but the Bees can take solice that when the Pirates visited The Hive two weeks later they ran out 8-3 winners.
Tickets for this Saturdays home game v Telford Tigers are now available from the rink box office on 01344 789000 or can be purchased on the day.
