The Bracknell Bees this weekend start off with a road trip to face the high-flying Milton Keynes Lightning (7pm faceoff) on Saturday before they return to The Hive on Sunday to take on the Sheffield Steeldogs (6pm faceoff).
The Bees will be lifted by their impressive road win last Saturday away in Guildford and their gutsy home performance on Sunday against Basingstoke.
Saturday’s opponent, the Milton Keynes Lightning, had themselves a tough weekend last time out with a narrow overtime victory at home against the league leading Telford Tigers before losing out on the road the following day away at the Hull Pirates. The sides have met twice already with the Bees losing out in their opening road fixture of the season before running the Lightning close at The Hive two weekends ago. The Bees will be keen to build on last weekend’s performances and their two road victories already this season when they head to Buckinghamshire on Saturday.
On Sunday the Sheffield Steeldogs visit The Hive for the second time already this season and they are coming off the back of a four point weekend where they defeated the Manchester Phoenix at IceSheffield before an impressive come from behind win on the road at Peterborough on Sunday. The side’s previous encounter this season was also at The Hive in the Bees home regular season opener, the visitors left Berkshire with the two points on that occasion but despite the tough opposition the Bees will be looking to pick up their first win on home ice this season on Sunday.
