Head Coach Doug Sheppard said; Im pleased with how were playing of late. We enjoyed the presentation last weekend after our home win over Invicta but we knew it was straight back to business the next night. This weekend we will take nothing for granted, London play a good game and having already beaten Bracknell will have no fear in playing another ex-EPL team. Well have Dan Davies back for this weekend and we know weneed to be at our best for this weekend and play the full 60 minutes that way both nights.

Bison are in Romford on Saturday for a 5.15pm face-off ahead of the the return in Basingstoke the following night at 5.30pm. Dan Davies is back after missing the away game in Invicta.

Tickets are available from the usual outlets and season ticket seat reservations will be held up until 90 minutes before face-off for season tickets who buy valid game tickets for the fixture.
