Bracknell Bees aim for maximum pointsBy Adam Lee

Bracknell Bees have, on paper, their best opportunity for a four-point weekend so far this season as they play the two teams below them in the EPIHL table.
Bees host Telford Tigers tomorrow night (6pm face-off) before making the trip to Peterborough Phantoms on Sunday (5.30pm).
Bracknell, who are vastly improved from last year, boast the fifth meanest defence in the league, but that record is sure to be tested in the coming weeks as coach Gareth Cox’s men come to terms with life without Sam Waller.
The young blue-liner had been an integral part in Bees’ team this season, but dropped a bombshell on Cox last week by completing a move to league rivals Slough Jets.
However, Lewis Turner has stepped up from Bracknell Hornets with great affect, and with the continued improvement of Ben Johnson and Bradley Watchorn, it is not all doom and gloom for Cox’s men.
