RUGBY LEAGUE: A RELATIVELY short trip awaits Coventry Bears on Saturday as they prepare to face Gloucestershire All Golds at the Prince of Wales Stadium (3pm).
Tom Tsang’s men will be looking to avenge the home defeat they suffered at the hands of the All Golds back in May when a disappointing second half cost them the game.
Having been deadlocked at 12-12 at half time, Bears made several key defensive errors and eventually lost the game 18-26.
Saturday’s opponents have had a respectable season on the pitch with ten victories across all competitions.
Last week it emerged though that respected All Golds coach Lee Greenwood left the club to find employment in the north of England, nearer to where he is originally from.
Whether this has a demoralising or galvanising effect on his young team remains to be seen.
Meanwhile Bears enter the game on the back of a confidence boosting win against Hemel Stags at the Butts Park Arena.
Buoyed by this they go into Saturday’s match with the likes of Oxford firmly in their sights as they yet again look to pull away from the stragglers at the foot of the table.
Despite this, Bears will have to overcome their poor form away from home. The club has failed to win two games in a row on the road this season.
