Bedford Blues will be hoping to continue the Christmas celebrations when they welcome table-topping Bristol to Goldington Road on Boxing Day for a huge festive clash.
 
A bumper crowd is expected at the game with the Blues looking to continue their recent good form but they will face their sternest test of the season against Andy Robinson's men who are yet to taste defeat.
 
It was four years ago that the two sides met on the same date and on that encounter Bedford Blues fans helped to clear four inches of snow from the pitch before Mike Rayer's men went on to win the game 39-22.
 

Day 24 of the Blues Advent Calendar and Christmas Eve wishes you season greetings and a very Merry Christmas from all at Bedford Blues.

The Club would like to thank supporters for their loyal backing season in, season out and look forward to welcoming a healthy crowd to Goldington Road on Boxing Day.

Online ticket sales for Boxing Day have now closed, but there will be plenty of tickets available at the gate on match-day and we hope to see the town out in force to cheer on Mike Rayer’s Blues.
