Report

SCUNTHORPE picked up the first away win in the Cab Direct Championship on opening night with a 46-44 victory at Redcar on Friday.

The Scorpions enjoyed success at the ECCO Arena for the second time in 2024 despite a 13+2 paid maximum for Bears guest Erik Riss.

After nine races the visitors had raced into a ten-point lead and a fightback from the home side proved to be in vain with Michael Palm Toft’s win in Heat 14 securing the away result.

Palm Toft top-scored for a solid Scorpions side with 10 points whilst Connor Mountain (9+2) and Kyle Howarth (9+1) combined for two key early 5-1s. Charles Wright added 14 from six rides for the Bears.

Scunthorpe manager David Howe said: “I’m really happy with the performance from the boys. It was a solid performance and every point counted towards our victory.

“We had a disappointing weekend last week, but we don’t suddenly turn into a bad side because of a couple of away defeats. Last weekend may actually be just what we needed – it was a reminder how we need to knuckle down to get results.

“Of course, it’s fantastic to start our Cab Direct Championship fixtures with an away win, but I feel there’s still much more to come from us. I don’t believe we’re yet riding at our full potential.”

REDCAR 44: Charles Wright 14, Erik Riss 13+2, Jason Edwards 6+1, Connor Bailey 4+1, Jake Mulford 3+1, Ben Trigger 3, Jonas Knudsen 1.
SCUNTHORPE 46: Michael Palm Toft 10, Connor Mountain 9+2, Kyle Howarth 9+1, Ashton Boughen 8+2, Jake Allen 7, Simon Lambert 2+2, Luke Harrison 1.
