Redcar SG Petch Bears will be looking for a repeat of last week’s thriller against Glasgow, as they take on the Edinburgh Monarchs at the Media Prima Arena on tonight (7:30pm).

With a depleted side last week, not many people will have predicted the Bears to come out on top, and Bears manager Jitendra Duffill was on cloud 9 after the meeting. He was delighted with the whole side, but in particular Jason Garrity and Ben Barker in heats 13 and 15:

“What a night that was last Thursday.  I don't think I stopped smiling for 2 days after. We were so determined to beat Glasgow after the events that took place when we first met and that victory meant a lot and will live long in the memory. It was good to see Ben and Jason back on top form last week. Heats 13 and 15 were a bit special and that really is what speedway is all about. Tobi contributed well and definitely benefited from the change in track prep' we requested whereas Jonas and Ellis came to the party with important points when it mattered.  Everybody responded superbly to our team talk during the interval and credit to all of them for that.”

This week sees the Bears come up against the side sitting in fourth in the league - and to have a realistic chance of making the playoffs need to ensure they pick up the win and gain some ground. Duffill is expecting a tough but hopefully exciting meeting again:

“This week’s fixture is another huge one for us and also for our guests Edinburgh. There is still an outside chance that we can snatch that last play off spot and this is an opportunity for us to gain a little ground on the Monarchs.  Having said that, it's also a great opportunity for our visitors to pull further away and defeat this week would surely end any hopes we have of catching them. This one has the potential to be a very exciting meeting and I want to see the same determination and aggression that our boys showed against Glasgow. Mitchell Davey did a great job for us last week at reserve and he can be a threat this week alongside Max Clegg for Edinburgh.” 

The Bears are back to full strength for this meeting, with Charles Wright and Danny Ayres returning to the side after missing last week's clash. Edinburgh are still without Sam Masters who is out injured, ex-Bears favourite Ty Proctor will replace him. 

Redcar SG Petch Bears: Ben Barker, Ellis Perks, Jason Garrity, Jonas B Andersen, Charles Wright, Tobias Busch, Danny Ayres
Edinburgh: Ty Proctor, Mark Riss, Ricky Wells, Josh Pickering, Erik Riss, Max Clegg, Mitchell Davey
