This coming weekend the Bracknell Bees start their weekend’s action on Saturday with a short road trip along the M3 to take on their local rivals the Basingstoke Bison (6.30pm) before returning home to The Hive on Sunday to face the English Premier Leagues second placed side the Milton Keynes Lightning (6pm faceoff).
Following a close fought match at The Hive last Saturday against the league leading Telford Tigers and a resounding road win away at Hull the following evening the Bees will be looking to gain some local bragging rights away in Basingstoke on Saturday before looking to cause an upset against the high flying Milton Keynes Lightning at The Hive on Sunday evening.
The Bees travel to Basingstoke on Saturday for the last time this regular season to face the Bison. So far this season the Bison have won all five previous encounters between the two sides and with the Hampshire side currently sitting fourth in the league table, having won five of their last six games since the turn of the New Year, the Bees will face a tough task in the local M3 derby match-up.
With three wins and an overtime loss from their last four games, again since the turn of the New Year, the Milton Keynes Lightning sit in second place in the current league table and their visit to The Hive on Sunday will present the Bees with another tough challenge. The match up will be the fourth meeting between the two teams so far this season, with the Lightning having won all three previous encounters.
