Ready to go again

So we dust ourselves down, strip down our bikes and start all over again.

After a typically hard-fought, eventful and, naturally, slightly controversial night at Ashfield, the Jewson Bandits, powered by Keenwood Karpets and Glasgow Tigers meet again at Shielfield Park tonight, 7pm.

Despite some bumps and bruises both sides are unchanged with the Tigers defending a seven point advantage with the aggregate bonus also up for grabs.

No surprise that the biggest threat will come from Glasgow’s Chris Harris who was doing things only Bomber can on his way to a paid maximum last night. With Oxford moving to the top of the table despite losing to Redcar in their second Super Heat of the week and the Scottish contingent starting to stir at the foot of the table, the three points on offer tonight will have a huge effect on the battle for a top four place and qualification for the play-offs.

Edinburgh 6 2 0 4 250 290 0 4

It’s a lovely, warm morning in TD15 and the forecast is steady for the day ahead.

So all is set for another battle royale in front of the BSN Cameras. BSN
