It’s nearly here, the big bumper New Year’s Day clash against London Scottish at Goldington Road in front of the Sky Sports cameras! Preparations are taking shape, logistics being put in place, on and off-field entertainment scheduled and lots of tickets are still available online and at the gate to help make this Friday another great occasion.

It was a Boxing Day blockbuster at Billesley Common as Bedford Blues came out on the right end of a roller-coaster of a match against Moseley to consolidate their play-off position in the Championship with a 24-31 win, writes Bedfordshire on Sunday.

The Blues eventually out-scored their hosts five tries to four as both sides made light of the blustery conditions to put on a real spectacle for the crowd.

The match turned in the first eight minutes of the second half as two tries by full back Piers O'Conor helped Bedford turn a 14-12 half-time deficit into a 24-14 lead.

Bedford Blues will be looking to end the year on a high as they get set to face Moseley on Boxing Day at Billesley Common.

The Blues and Moseley were involved in a cracking encounter at Goldington Road earlier in the season which saw Bedford racking up a 38-32 win over their Midlands opponents who will certainly be looking for revenge this time around.

Bedford go into the game on the back of a 34-17 British & Irish Cup win over Bristol last weekend which saw the Blues running in five tries against the league leaders in an enthralling encounter.

Bedford Blues hopes of reaching the knock out stages of the British & Irish Cup were boosted on Saturday evening when they picked up a 34-17 bonus point win over Bristol.

Following last Friday’s 52-8 reversal, you could have been forgiven for expecting the worst when Andy Robinson’s men arrived at Goldington Road but the Blues clearly learnt from the previous encounter, cut out the mistakes, reduced the penalty count and ran in five superb tries to seal a thoroughly deserved victory.
