There is always a buzz about Goldington Road when it’s Friday Night Lights and Bedford Blues repaid the 2574 faithful fans who turned out with an evening of running rugby and fine tries as they defeated Rotherham Titans 46-28.

Two for Jordan Burns, two for Henry Staff, a penalty try and one Piers O’Conor along with 16 points from Jake Sharps boot did the damage although the visitors – who had trailed 41-0, did rally to secure a try bonus point.

Bedford Blues will be looking forward to a return to Goldington Road as they prepare to take on Rotherham Titans under the Friday Night Lights.

The Blues went down 34-27 during a back and forth game in Jersey last Saturday, but more concerning were the number of injuries that were picked up during the encounter. Michael Le Bourgeois, Sam Blanchet, Ollie Dodge, Camilo Parilli-Ocampo (all concussion), Henry Taylor (ankle) and Phil Boulton (back) are all ruled out of action for Friday’s game.

Rotherham have held the upper hand in recent fixtures so the Blues will have to go some to force a change in fortunes

Friday night lights return to Goldington Road this Friday 16th October with an added Beer Festival in the Blues Marquee as Mike Rayer’s men prepare to face Rotherham Titans (Kick Off 7:45pm).

Following narrow defeat against Jersey last time out, the Blues will be hoping to bounce straight back against the Yorkshiremen, who have also endured a mixed start to the season following successive play-off appearance in the past two campaigns.

Bedford Blues tasted defeat on the road against Jersey on Saturday afternoon, but it was one hell of a game that really could have gone either way.

The Blues scored three tries with two coming from Dean Adamson and one from Mike Howard, but the home team made good use of their forwards to snatch the win with a fourth try before the Blues threw the kitchen sink at the hosts late on.
