PREVIEW: BERWICK v OXFORD (Champ)

OXFORD boss Jason Crump insists his squad’s confidence has not taken a knock ahead of their visit to Berwick tonight (Saturday).

The Cheetahs have suffered back-to-back defeats against Poole, and head to Shielfield Park without Cameron Heeps (illness) and Josh Macdonald (injured), with Nathan Stoneman again standing in at reserve at the start of a mini-Northern tour which also sees them race at Newcastle on Sunday.

Crump said: “We’ve already been to Berwick this season with the Chargers, it was good to get a look at the track then. It’s a challenging track, but hopefully the boys will rise to the challenge.

“In my opinion, we should target coming away with some points from this weekend’s fixtures. We’ll travel north high on confidence despite Wednesday’s result.

“Jack (Thomas) is still young, as is Dillon (Ruml) – they have long careers in front of them. It’s great to see them progressing at the rate they have, and let’s hope it continues because we need every rider in the team to contribute to their maximum ability every time.”

BERWICK: Chris Harris, Ty Proctor, Theo Pijper, Leon Flint, Ricky Wells, Jye Etheridge, Kyle Bickley.
OXFORD: Troy Batchelor, Cameron Heeps R/R, Jack Thomas, Kyle Newman, Scott Nicholls, Dillon Ruml, Nathan Stoneman.
