Invicta Dynamos hit the road for the first time this season when they travel to the John Nike Leisuresport Complex on Saturday to take on Bracknell Hornets.
The Dynamos then return to the Ice Bowl on Sunday to face Cardiff Dragons, and coach Kevin Parrish admits the double-header is just what his team need at this stage of the season.
"Having not had any pre-season games we definitely welcome the chance to play two this weekend," he said.
"Going to Bracknell is always a tough one and after their win at Peterborough last weekend, they’ve proved they are a team to be reckoned with.
"They play on a big ice pad and the atmosphere will be a lot quieter than it was on Sunday against Milton Keynes.
"In contrast, Sunday’s game is a bit of a trip into the unknown as we don’t know a lot about the Dragons’ roster but hopefully they won’t know much about our roster, either."
