Bedford Blues winger Dean Adamson praised his team-mates after a fantastic 34-17 victory over Bristol at Goldington Road on Saturday afternoon.

The 22-year-old winger scored two out of the five finely worked tries that Bedford ran in against Bristol in the final British and Irish Cup fixture of 2015 as the Blues go in to 2016 sitting top of pool two.

Bedford went in to Saturday’s game looking for revenge over Bristol as they suffered a 52-8 loss at Ashton Gate in the reverse fixture two weeks ago.

Adamson said: “We focused on our game plan from the first whistle and it certainly helped in the opening 10 minutes.

“We attacked from the first whistle and I’m pretty happy that I got on the scoresheet twice in an important victory.”

“The forwards put in a huge shift this week, allowing us to focus on our attacking areas which gave me the opportunity to score two tries deep in the corner.”

Bristol came to Goldington Road on Saturday expecting another dominant victory, but the Blues looked the better team throughout.

Adamson added: “We’ve got a lot of important games coming up both home and away in the Championship and we’re taking every game as it comes; we can’t get carried away.”

“The next few weeks we’re up against some really strong teams, we just need to focus on our own game and hopefully we can keep improving our performances.”
