REDCAR are through to the BSN Series semi-finals after a hard-fought 49-41 win over Birmingham.

The Bears needed to avoid defeat after 15 races at the Ecco Arena to book their place as best group runners-up, but were given a nervous evening by a dogged Brummies side inspired by skipper Justin Sedgmen, who won his first four rides.

But Connor Bailey and Jason Edwards finally made the match safe with a 5-1 in Heat 14 before home captain Charles Wright produced the ride of the night to pass both Sedgmen and guest Zach Cook in Heat 15.

Wright top-scored for the Bears with 14 from five rides with Danny King adding 10, whilst Sedgmen (13+1) and Cook (10) led the way for the Brummies.

The BSN Series semi-final qualifiers are confirmed as group winners Glasgow, Scunthorpe and Poole, who are now joined by Redcar, with the draw for the last four to be made.

REDCAR 49: Charles Wright 14, Danny King 10, Jason Edwards 9+1, Richard Lawson 7+2, Danyon Hume 5+1, Connor Bailey 4+1, Jake Mulford 0.
BIRMINGHAM 41: Justin Sedgmen 13+1, Zach Cook 10, James Pearson 7+2, Alfie Bowtell 7, Nick Morris 2, Stefan Nielsen 1+1, Ty Proctor 1+1.
