Glasgow at the double for Berwick at weekend


The Berwick "KLS" Bandits (Powered by Mike Hope of Wooler) are still clinging tightly to fourth place in the SGB Championship but with Workington powering up behind, and with three matches in hand, every league point has doubled in importance for Berwick now who battle at the Glasgow Tigers on Friday night at 7.30pm with their new-look side taking to the track.

Just a week ago the Tigers dropped Richie Worrall and the injured Lewis Kerr, bringing in Nathan Greaves and British Grand Prix star, Craig Cook who has just hit the best patch of form in his 2018 season taking three wins in Saturday's British Grand Prix at Cardiff indicating the Berwick track record holder will be more than a handful for the Border lads to handle.

Team manager Scott Courtney said: "Glasgow are never an easy prospect, especially on their own shale and with Cook in the side we are in for one heck of a match on Friday, but we have a group of guys with good experience round Ashfield and will know well the league situation, and if they want more matches in the play-offs, then they have to get those famous Bandits' positive vibes at full bore and start hitting hard from the start, tomorrow and Saturday as every point is vital.

"There's no pretence here as we all know this is a massive task but its the business end of the season and its time to knuckle right down - prepare for action!"

For Saturday's return fixture at Shielfield Park (7.00pm), Cook is away racing in Germany for the Grand Prix Challenge, going for the 2019 GP series, and Rory Schlein will take a guest booking in his place.

Tonight's Line-up:

Glasgow: Craig Cook (Rory Schlein on Saturday - Guest), Nathan Greaves, Claus Vissing, Paul Starke, Chris Harris, James Sarjeant, Jack Thomas

Berwick: Kevin Doolan, Jye Etheridge, David Howe, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Aaron Summers, Theo Pijper, Dany Gappmaier
