Weather is fine,  be interesting to see Shane round Ashfield. 

Obv depends on RR or guest but I think 52-38

Shanes was up last year guesting for us. Looked a bit raw but definite prospect. Be interesting to see if Jack Smith has become more competent on small tracks. Lokking forward to this one.

I fear for Sheffield, we struggled at Newcastle and only scraped a draw last night at home. 55-35

Think we are in really fix tonight.

Rider Replacement for Kyle Howarth will not reap the points that Kyle would have scored.

If we can get past 32 points I think that we will have done well.

Atleast Charles can have up to 7 rides,same with James so that might get us to 20,the rest might scrape a few points between them,64-26!

oh dear.not totally unexpected.good performance from charles again tonight.3 points from r/r.graversen 1 and todd 4 just about speaks for itself.think we need to get a replacement in asap for josh's much as i would like to see him back.we are definitely missing josh g,s scoring from last season but our biggest miss is undoubtably josh bates.unless something is sorted pronto it could turn out to be a very short season for us.how long is kyle likely to be missing as this is also another worry for us.

That was a decent meeting which Glasgow made heavy weather of in the opening 5 or 6 heats. Howarth would definitely have made it interesting! Charles Wright was superb and Bjerre started well but faded. Kurtz and Graversen were as they usually are.

Hopefully Starke isnt injured, he got upended by Jack Smith, who frustratingly looked a different rider from last year when he couldnt get a third with half a lap start.

Enjoyed tonight. Took a few heats for us to get going but after that we looked good. Harris and Worrall seemed to have shaken off there bike problems and for Sheffield Wright was excellent. Main talking point heat 14, what was that all about?

Still early days for Sheffield, basically we haven't fielded our full 1-7 yet..

Felt sorry for Jack. He'd done nothing wrong; he was in the correct gate with the correct helmet colour on. Then, despite the team being 20 points ahead with the match won, he's not given the 15m restart with an almost guaranteed minimum of 1 point for his pay packet. As you say, what was that all about?

Exactly.

Too many people overreacting after a couple of minor set-backs.

When Josh and Kyle are fit we’ll be a match for anyone.
