BOWDEN SEEKS PIECES OF EIGHT FROM BANDITS

plymouth devils speedway logoPlymouth will be seeking revenge over Berwick when they meet in the Speedway Premier League at St Boniface Arena on Friday evening (1930).

The Bandits inflicted Plymouth’s heaviest home defeat of the season when they beat them 57-36 on their previous visit at the beginning of August.

The Devils have been unbeaten at home since that match, winning their last seven home fixtures and Plymouth promoter Mike Bowden believes they can extend that run to eight home wins and soar off the basement.

Bowden says: “We want to turn things around this time and put one over on Berwick.

“Our target will be to win by at least seven points, so we can pick up the maximum three match points. That would be sufficient to take us off the bottom of the table and hand the wooden spoon to Leicester.”

Plymouth will be without Justin Sedgmen and the injured duo of Jesper Kristiansen and Kyle Hughes once again. So the Devils will bring in two guest replacements while using the rider replacement facility for the other vacancy.

Confirmation of both teams is still awaited, but Berwick have made one change since their previous visit with 22-year-old Swede Linus Eklof signed in place of the injured Australian Kozza Smith.

He joins fellow Swedish stars Seb Alden and Ludvig Lindgren, who both had double figure scores on their previous visit to the St Boniface Arena.

They received good support from Czech Republic rider Josef Franc and Yorkshireman Lee Complin, who scored eight points each.
