Friday night is speedway night this week, as the Redcar SG Petch Bears take on table topping Sheffield Tigers at the Media Prima Arena with the normal 7:30pm start.

The Bears will be looking to continue their good home form, after beating Berwick 54-39 last week and keep the pressure on the top 4 as the season begins to enter its final stages. They will also be buoyed by the excellent second place at the Championship Fours last Sunday, a result that will no doubt give the whole side confidence. Jonas B Andersen will unfortunately be missing the meeting with Sheffield, as he is riding in his native Denmark. Rider replacement will operate in his place. With the new averages now out, Ben Barker takes his place at number 1 after a superb run of form this season.

Sheffield come to the MPA sitting proudly on top of the table as things stand, and are looking good for a play-off place. It will certainly be another tricky test for the Bears, with the Tigers team containing a number of riders who can score big points at the Teesside track. Big hitter Josh Grajczonek has consistently hit top scores this season, whilst Josh Bates has had an excellent couple of years for his hometown club. The Tigers also contain ex-Bear Jan Graverson at reserve, who is a fairly new signing for the visitors. Jan certainly knows the quick way around the MPA, and indeed won the Silver Helmet meeting a couple of seasons ago. Unfortunately, Lasse Bjerre is still suffering the effects of a knee injury and will miss the meeting. Rider replacement will also operate for him.

Redcar: Ben Barker, r/r for Jonas B Andersen, Jason Garrity, Ellis Perks, Charles Wright, Tobias Busch, Danny Ayres

Sheffield: Josh Grajczonek, Todd Kurtz, r/r for Lasse Bjerre, Josh Bates, Kyle Howarth, Jan Graverson, George Wood
