COVENTRY Buildbase Bees return to action after the week-long World Cup break with a trip to Lakeside in the Elite League on Monday.
Bees are currently well-placed in third position in the table with matches in hand on the top two, and a sixth away win of the season would increase their chances of an all-important top two finish still further.
The Hammers are a very different team to the one which defeated Coventry 52-41 the last time the two sides met early last month, as their promotion made three changes in a bid to improve their away form.
The most notable of those changes was the arrival of Andreas Jonsson, still a Bees asset, who will face his parent club in an Elite League match for the first time assuming he is declared fit after a recent shoulder injury.
Whilst the inclusion of Jonsson gives the Hammers a powerful top four line-up, they are now a little vulnerable lower down and Bees will look to take advantage of any weaknesses in that department on what has generally been a good circuit for them.
Bees will be at full-strength at the start of an important run of fixtures which also includes Wednesday's Knockout Cup second leg tie at Poole.
ARENA ESSEX-LAKESIDE: Andreas Jonsson, Joonas Kylmakorpi, Krzysztof Kasprzak, Leigh Lanham, Adam Shields, Ricky Kling, Lubos Tomicek.
BUILDBASE BEES: Scott Nicholls, Olly Allen, Rory Schlein, Steve Johnston, Chris Harris, Billy Janniro, Martin Smolinski.
