2022 British Speedway Season

    PREVIEW: SCUNTHORPE v KENT (Champ)

    SCUNTHORPE promoter Rob Godfrey is urging his team to keep their home focus as they prepare to face Kent tonight (Friday).

    The Scorpions have won all six league matches at the Eddie Wright Raceway to lift themselves to second place in the Championship, although they are aware an improvement in away form will be required to reach the play-offs.

    Former Scunthorpe man Steve Worrall guests for Adam Ellis, who is competing in the European Pairs this weekend, whilst the Kings continue to operate rider-replacement for Tom Bacon and have named Jake Mulford as No.8.

    Godfrey said: “While we fully realise we do need to get some away points, first and foremost it’s about your home form, it’s about keeping a clean sheet at home and, so far, we have managed that while some other teams haven’t.

    “I think it’ll be another top night of speedway. Kings are led by a class rider in Scott Nicholls, who has been in excellent form so far this season, and they contain some riders who can be a real handful around the Eddie Wright Raceway.

    “We need to be on our guard and ensure we bring home the three league points.”

    SCUNTHORPE: Steve Worrall, Simon Lambert, Theo Pijper, Tero Aarnio, Thomas Jorgensen, Jordan Palin, Josh Macdonald.
    KENT: Scott Nicholls, Tom Bacon r/r, Paul Starke, Paul Hurry, Cameron Heeps, Ben Morley, Da Gilkes, Jake Mulford (no.8).
