THE Basingstoke Bison have a revenge mission on Saturday night, when the Peterborough Phantoms come to town.

Last Sunday, they lost in Cambridgeshire to their rivals 5-1 and will keen to continue their perfect home record on Saturday (6.30pm).

Only British forward Oscar Evans will be missing from the line-up and Bison player/coach Ashley Tait said: "Last weekend we played a lot better than the opening weekend. In Peterborough were only 2-1 down with 12 minutes left and very much in the game. They got a good bounce and scored a third goal and we could not find a way back.

"I am expecting another close game on Saturday."

Sunday evening, the Bison make their first trip of the season to Yorkshire to face the Sheffield Steeldogs in a game which has a 4.30pm face-off.

Tait said: "Like Peterborough, Sheffield will be looking for top four finish so it will be another tough road game."
