TOMORROW night (7.30pm) the

Basingstoke Bison

are on the road again as they travel to Wiltshire to take on the league leading Swindon Wildcats.

Then on Saturday evening (6.30pm) the Herd will entertain the Raiders from Romford.

The Bison lost at home to Swindon earlier this season and against the Raiders they have won the last two games including a penalty shot success in Essex on November 17.

The Herd still have an injury doubt on British forward George Norcliffe.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Basingstoke player/coach Ashley Tait said: "We know it is going to be tough game in Swindon and we have to stop giving teams a 3-0 head start, as we did last weekend.

"You never know what to expect with the Raiders as on their day they are as good as anyone in this league."

Last Sunday, the Bison never recovered from conceding three goals in 43 seconds in the first period, as they lost 6-4 in Hull against the Pirates.

A Bobby Chamberlain brace and Lee Bonner were the scorers of quick treble which saw the Herd call a time-out at 13:29.

Michal Klejna assisted by Ryan Sutton got the Bison on the scoreboard with a powerplay strike before the first buzzer.

Just 56 seconds after the re-start Jason Hewitt made 4-1, but within a minute the Herd's Hallam Wilson netted from Adam Harding.

Hewitt netted again, before Klejna pulled one back as he converted a pass from Josh Kelly.

Hewitt then completed his hat-trick just before the second buzzer.

Alex Sampford with a powerplay strike assisted by Ashley Tait and Adam Jones made 6-4 at 40:14 and that was how it stayed till the end.

Bison netminder Alex Mettam who faced 43 shots was the visitor's man of the match.
