THE Basingstoke Bison will hope to equal a club record, which has stood for 25 years, if they beat Streatham and Milton Keynes Thunder. this weekend.

The Herd have reeled off 10 straight league wins and two more will equal their best ever start to a league campaign which came in 1992, which was when the club won the first of their two championship titles.

Standing in their way is a visit from Streatham on Saturday (6.30pm) and then a trip to MK on Sunday (6.30pm).

The Herd have beaten both teams twice already this season, but last time at Streatham, the Herd left to late to win 4-3.

Last weekend, the Bison had just the one game which saw them beat the Bracknell Bees 6-1.

Sheppard said: “We are playing well at the moment as a team and against Bracknell all three lines scored which was great to see.

"I am looking for us to continue the form we are showing and getting another record is always a bonus. We will just take each game at a time."

The Bison are excepted to welcome back Ryan Sutton into their line-up for this weekend, after missing the Bees game.

Saturday’s home game will see the annual Teddy Bear Toss Charity event.

This is in aid of Charlie’s day unit, which is a children’s day assessment and observation unit located in the Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Grace Community, which is a children’s orphanage in Kahawa West, Kenya.

Sheppard said: “This event is always well supported by our fans and I look forward to seeing them hit the ice after the first goal of the game.”
