Report

EDINBURGH closed in on the Championship leaders with a dominant 58-32 win over Newcastle at Armadale.

The Monarchs provided all but one of the race winners with Josh Pickering (14+1) and Sam Masters (13+2) both scoring paid maximums, whilst Richie Worrall added 13 and Kye Thomson racked up 15+2 from seven rides at reserve.

James Wright (8+3) notched the Diamonds’ sole success in Heat 12 whilst Ben Barker top-scored with 9.
Masters said: “Big scores for all the boys and we need that confidence boost for a busy month coming up. We need to be on our game, and we all are!”

Diamonds boss Steve Pate said: “We had hope, but it was always going to be tough as Edinburgh of late have been banging in some big scores including a huge away win at Berwick last weekend, so we were up against it.

“When you race a meeting but only manage one heat win, thanks to James Wright in Heat 12, you can’t win matches, and yet we only hit eight last places, so we need that heat-leading power to increase.”
