BIRMINGHAM DUCTAIR BULLS NARROW  THE GAP AT THE TOP OF THE TABLE TO ONE POINT WITH 20-15 AT LEICESTER

 

The 2024 MDL title race becomes more interesting with the Birmingham DUCTAIR Bulls gaining a win to move into 2nd spot behind the Birmingham Buffaloes. The two sides meet at Perry Barr on Monday night with a Bulls win moving them to top spot so it should be some clash!

The Lion Cubs were hit by the unavailability of No. 1 Kai Ward due to work commitments with Rider Replacement utilised to cover his rides. They then lost skipper Jamie Etherington after he crashed out in heat 3 taking a rider replacement ride and was withdrawn from the clash.

Heat 1 saw Joe Crewe get into an awkward slide on a wet patch coming out of bend 2 and despite his efforts to steer his machine the referee excluded him after the race for crossing the white line with both wheels!

The home took the lead in heat 2 6-5 before the Bulls edged ahead 9-8 and extended that to 10-13 before the ever improving Harrison Rogers took heat 5 ahead of Bailey Fellows , having his first meeting of the season ending with 8 points . His cousin Jacob Fellows also notched 8 after getting a late call up to ride for Leicester in the main meeting scoring 2+1.

The Crewe brothers battled hard and did their bit towards their team’s win in a unique family feel with two cousins and two brothers !

For the home side Harley Driscoll-Freeman gained more important track time .
