MATCH PREVIEW V LONDON SCOTTISH - AMENDED

*Following last night's training session, Bedford Blues have been forced into a late change to their team to face London Scottish as George Perkins has been ruled out with injury. Pat Tapley will replace Perkins on the right wing.*

It'll be Friday Night Lights for a second time at Goldington Road this season as Bedford Blues prepare to host London Scottish in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The two teams kicked off 2016 with Bedford racking up a 31-19 victory in front of over 4000 fans but the Exiles had previously recorded a 24-12 win in the reverse fixture in September 2015.

The Blues head into the game following a bonus point win over London Welsh at Old Deer Park, but know that they will need to keep their wits about them as the visitors will be looking to make amends for their loss to Richmond a week earlier.

Bedford make just one enforced change to the team which defeated London Welsh after Justin Blanchet was ruled out of Friday's encounter. He is replaced in the team by Mike Howard who lines up in the second row while Ed Taylor moves to Blindside flanker and Byron Hodge comes in on the replacements bench.
