The Bears put in a solid showing down at Somerset earlier this season, losing by a solitary two points in a 46-44 defeat which saw the Bears progress into the next round of the KO Cup. Confidence will be high after the excellent win over Edinburgh on Saturday night – although the Bears will be operating rider replacement for Tom Bacon who is still suffering after his fall at Peterborough on Sunday. Bears skipper Charles Wright will be looking to put one over on his old employers!
Somerset themselves will go into the full of confidence after their win in the Championship Fours at the weekend, and usually go well around their home track. It promises to be another exciting meeting! Safe trip to our fans making the long journey.
Bears are back in home action on Friday against table topping Leicester.
Bears: Charles Wright, r/r for Tom Bacon, Ulrich Ostegaard, Jordan Stewart, Michael Palm Toft, Nathan Greaves, Jack Smith
Somerset: Rory Schlein, Todd Kurtz, Valentin Grobauer, Nico Covatti, Chris Harris, Anders Rowe, Henry Atkins
