Report

EDINBURGH will take an 18-point advantage to Redcar on Saturday for the second leg of their Championship play-off quarter-final.

Josh Pickering (15) and Sam Masters (13+2) both scored maximums for the Monarchs at Armadale as they defeated the Bears 54-36.

There were three multi-rider pile-ups during the meeting, with Redcar’s Lewis Kerr withdrawing after a Heat 9 crash and Edinburgh’s Kye Thomson also feeling the effects.

Charles Wright top-scored for the visitors with 10, and interestingly they did defeat the Monarchs by 18 points the last time the teams met on Teesside.

Edinburgh boss Alex Harkess said: “If you’d offered me an 18-point lead at the start I’d certainly have taken it, but in the end I feel a little disappointed that we didn’t take a bit more of a lead.

“I thought we rode pretty well but there were heats we might have done better in.”
