The Cornish Pirates look to get their Championship play-offs campaign back on track.

They face an away clash with rivals Bedford, after last weekend's disappointing draw with Leeds Carnegie.

The last two times the rivals have met, Bedford have come away with the victory.

Forwards coach Ian Davies says the team know they have a score to settle:

"They've hammered us, both times. We've not got close to them. We've been very disappointed with our performances. They beat us here, at the Mennaye, which not many sides do and then when we went to Goldington Road, they gave us another spanking, so certainly the boys are motivated.

"Purely because of the disappointment last weekend, this now becomes a very important game. We set out that we needed to win all our games. We've already blown that, so we need to pick up a win on the road. This is our first opportunity to do that."
