POOLE will confirm their place in the Championship play-offs with a home win over Glasgow tonight (Friday).
The Pirates remain in pole position to finish top despite their defeat at Birmingham on Wednesday, but they are now without Stefan Nielsen after his crash at Perry Barr.
Alfie Bowtell stands in as a guest at reserve for the home side, whilst the Tigers include Luke Crang at reserve with documentation not completed on a potential new signing to replace Justin Sedgmen.
Poole co-promoter Danny Ford said: “This is such an important meeting for both teams, and it might not be the one and only time we have to face Glasgow here this season, so there is the psychological factor about it too.
“We have invested a considerable amount of time and effort in ensuring that our recent track frustrations are resolved so that the stars on show on Friday can really put on the show that we all know they are capable of.
“When you looked at the teams at the start of the season it was evident that Glasgow were the ones that you had to beat, and it was unfortunate that we didn’t have a true contest against them at their place earlier in the season once we lost Rory [Schlein] in the opening heat.
“That said though, I believe we have developed into an even stronger side since then, whilst they have recently made some changes to underline their intent.”
POOLE: Rory Schlein, Benjamin Basso, Steve Worrall, Ben Cook, Danny King, Alfie Bowtell, Danyon Hume.
GLASGOW: Craig Cook, Broc Nicol, Tom Brennan, Sam Jensen, Ricky Wells, Luke Crang, Connor Bailey.
