Ince Rose Bridge will arrive at the Beverley Leisure Centre in a rich vein of form. Like Beverley, they have won their last three NCL matches one of which was away from home.
Ince Rose Bridge are also riding high in NCL Divison 2 topping the table with 18 points from their opening 11 games. They have suffered just two defeats this season, losing away to Hull Dockers and Clock Face Miners.
When Beverley faced them earlier in the season, it was Ince Rose Bridge who claimed the win beating Beverley 17-4. While beaten Beverley did put up a good fist of things.
Taylor will be hoping his side can dig deep and continue their winning form against the league leaders. Beverley will certainly be going into the game full of confidence.
After a slow start, Beverley are starting to find their feet in the second tier. Games have been far more competitive compared to last season but the team have stuck with it and in recent weeks have ground out results.
Early Kick-Off Against Ince Rose Bridge Could Play Into Beverley’s Hands
This was attitude was evident to all supporters in their last home game when they beat East Leeds. Hideous conditions coupled with a bad-tempered East Leeds side made for a messy encounter.
While it would have been easy for Taylor’s men to lose their cool and get embroiled in a battle of gamesmanship, they did not.
Instead, they retained their heads and focused on the game. As a result of this, they secured a big win. and their second consecutive home win.
Beverley Leisure Centre has in recent years been a fortress for the Blue and Golds. Having beaten big hitters Bradford Dudley Hill they will fancy their chances against another of the league’s big hitters.
On request on the visiting side, the game has been moved to the earlier kick-off time of 12.30PM. This too could play to Beverley’s advantage.
