PREVIEW: EDINBURGH v GLASGOW (KOC)

EDINBURGH and Glasgow are set for a massive two nights of racing at Armadale – in two different competitions!

The Monarchs and the Tigers meet tonight (Friday) in the second leg of their KO Cup semi-final, with the visitors holding a 16-point lead from last weekend’s clash at Ashfield.

And then tomorrow evening they race the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final at the same venue.

Edinburgh star Josh Pickering said: “I’m not worried whether it is the Cup or the league, we’re here to win everything.

“We won’t bother thinking about the 16-point deficit on Friday, just go out to win every race.

“I’ve been here five years and we haven’t won anything in that time, so I want to put that right. The fans are here cold, wind, rain supporting us, so I want to win for them.”

Glasgow boss Cami Brown said: “Scottish derbies are always special but there has rarely been so much on the line for matches between Glasgow and Edinburgh as there is over the next week.

“The last time these matches meant so much was in 2015 when we made two Finals together, and I can still remember the tension and the atmosphere they generated.

“We might have a big lead in the Cup meeting as things stand, but it’ll count for nothing if we let our guard down. We’ve won at Edinburgh already this season so we know we can do it, but it’s still one of the toughest places to go.”

EDINBURGH: Sam Masters, Anders Rowe, Kye Thomson, Josh Pickering, Richie Worrall, Drew Kemp, Jason Edwards.
GLASGOW: Craig Cook, Sam Jensen, Broc Nicol, Tom Brennan, Ricky Wells, Marcin Nowak, Connor Bailey.
