While 2016 has been a mixed year for the Blues, they will be hoping to finish with a flurry as they head to Reading to take on London Irish on New Year's Eve.

When the two teams met back in September, the Blues gave a great account of themselves but fell just short as they went down 23-30 to the former Premiership side.

Confidence in the Bedford camp was given an extra boost following their last gasp 39-37 victory against Jersey Reds on Boxing Day. The Blues scored two late tries with a final conversion sealing a win that had looked out of reach with two minutes left on the clock.

Bedford Blues chances of reaching the quarter-finals of the British & Irish Cup suffered a huge blow on Saturday afternoon as they went down 40-23 to Ealing Trailfinders at Vallis Way.

When the teams met in the league encounter earlier this season, a single point separated them while last weekend’s reversal saw a 19 all draw. But an impressive first half from the hosts saw them set up a healthy lead which, despite a late fight back from Bedford, they never surrendered.
