The Bracknell Bees this weekend start off with a rare Saturday home game versus the league leading Telford Tigers (6pm faceoff) before hitting the road on Sunday for the long trip up to Blackpool to face the Manchester Phoenix on Sunday (5pm faceoff).
Telford are flying high in the league and, as yet, are undefeated in regular season play so far this season. The Tigers have won their last three games, all by one goal including a penalty shootout win over the Bees last opponents the Sheffield Steeldogs last weekend. Also last weekend the Tigers sealed a narrow win high flying Milton Keynes Lightning. Saturday at The Hive is sure to be a big test for the home side Bees who are still seeking their first win at The Hive this season.
The Bees have already visited the Manchester Phoenix in their temporary home in Blackpool once this season and came away with the road win a month ago and will be looking for more of the same to avenge the defeat at the hands of the Phoenix at The Hive the following night. Last weekend the Phoenix surprised the Guildford Flames in the Spectrum with a penalty shot win on Saturday before losing out in Blackpool to the Basingstoke Bison. The sides currently occupy the last two league places and are sure to both go all out for the important two points.
