GLASGOW made a strong recovery from Friday’s defeat at Scunthorpe to turn the tables on the Scorpions with a 59-31 victory at Ashfield.
The result moves the Tigers up to second in the Championship and was a reward for perseverance after the meeting was delayed by over two hours due to heavy rain in the build-up.
All seven home riders won at least one race with Benjamin Basso leading the way on 12+1, and Tom Brennan added 10. Ryan Douglas scored eight for the Scorpions.
Glasgow boss Cami Brown said: “After the weather intervened, all credit to our track staff for getting a fantastic racetrack.
“I think everyone has picked each other up. We had a bad one at Armadale a week past on Friday, and the next day at home to Edinburgh I thought we reacted very well.
“Scunthorpe is a very difficult place to go to – we weren’t particularly good on Friday night but we more than made up for it today.
“Some of the passing was amazing. I can’t believe how well the track rode – two hours before the meeting it was just mush.”
GLASGOW 59: Benjamin Basso 12+1, Tom Brennan 10, Craig Cook 9, Ulrich Ostergaard 8+1, Broc Nicol 8+1, Danyon Hume 7+2, Connor Bailey 5+1.
SCUNTHORPE 31: Ryan Douglas 8, Justin Sedgmen 7, Simon Lambert 6+1, Jake Allen 5+1, Zaine Kennedy 4+3, Jordan Palin 1, Connor Coles 0.
