MATCH PREVIEW V ROTHERHAM

Bedford Blues will be looking to make the most of home advantage when Rotherham Titans come to town on Saturday afternoon.

Bedford will be buoyed having overcome Jersey Reds on the road last weekend and now they will be hoping to transfer that winning mentality back to Goldington Road this Saturday.

Looking ahead to the game, Blues Forwards Coach Martin Hynes said: "It may not have been the prettiest of games against Jersey last week but the lads rolled up their sleeves, put in a big shift and came away with four points and you can't ask for much more than that.

"Rotherham aren't having the happiest of times on the pitch this season, but we know only too well that a wounded animal is a dangerous one. Rotherham are a proud rugby club and Andy Key will have them raring to go for this one so we need to make sure that we match them all over the pitch if we want to get another league win under our belts."

Bedford make three changes for the game against Rotherham with George Edgson and Ben Cooper starting in the front row while Jordan Onojaife gets the nod in the second row.
