EDINBURGH produced a big finish to virtually secure their Championship play-off place with a 48-42 win at Newcastle.
The Monarchs trailed by four points with three heats remaining but completed the meeting with two 5-1s and a 4-2.
Richie Worrall (12) and Sam Masters (11+1) rounded things off with maximum points in Heat 15, whilst guest Ricky Wells top-scored for the Diamonds with 9+1.
Edinburgh star Josh Pickering (8+1) said: “I usually like it but tonight it wasn’t really a race-track, for one thing it was so dusty you couldn’t see, and for another there was no grip for racing.
“But the result was what we were looking for and I’m looking forward to the play-offs and also hopefully qualifying for the next round of the Cup.”
