Team News

Darren Elliott returns to the squad following a 2 month lay-off due to a leg injury, meaning the Stars are at full strength heading into the weekend.


The Opposition

Bracknell have had a tough first half of the season which sees them rock bottom of the NIHL S1 table, but that doesn’t represent a true reflection of their quality, as we saw in the BBO Cup earlier this season when they came to Oxpens Road and recorded a 6-2 win against the Stars.

Players to look out for include the Ealey-Newman brothers (Ben and Josh), and also Ondrej Pekarik, all of who made the move from Oxford to Bracknell earlier this season, and all of whom are dangerous going forward and on their day have the ability to hurt any team in the league.
