Iversen Out For Season

Iversen Out For Season

King’s Lynn ‘Roger Warnes Transport’ Stars have been rocked by the news that number one Niels-Kristian Iversen has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury.

The Danish racer crashed with Greg Hancock in the ninth round of the 2014 Grand Prix series which has resulted in him suffering extensive knee ligament damage and needing surgery.

Iversen has become the second of the Stars team become injured in the latter stages of the season. Lewis Rose is also on the injury list with a knee injury. From now until the end of the season the Stars will need to rely on guest riders to cover for Iversen due to a rule whereby riders cannot be signed after August 28th.

Speaking from Poland, Iversen said” Unfortunately the season is over for me. My knee is not great after the crash and I will need to have an operation in order to fix it. I will be back stronger and 100pc ready for the start of next season.”

Scorpions Look Good For Play Offs

Scorpions Look Good For Play Offs

Scunthorpe look set to capture a place in the end of season play-offs after sealing three league points against Workington yesterday at the Eddie Wright Raceway. The Scorpions beat the Comets 53-37 in the crucial clash which seen the home side move six points clear of sixth place Newcastle in the table.

Scunthorpe currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League table nine points ahead of seventh place Redcar, they also have four meetings in hand on the Teesiders. It leaves one place up for grabs in the play-off spots between Redcar, Newcastle and Workington, Peterborough have an outside chance but may run out of time to complete their fixtures.

Veteran reserve David Howe was the home sides match winner, suffering only one defeat all afternoon as he helped himself to 17 points, he had this to say after the vital win, “We all seem to be coming together at around the right time. Nicolai (Klindt) has now had a dodgy couple of meetings. He is carrying an injury and I’m not sure how much that is affecting him. Once he gets back to the form he had earlier in the season we are going to be hard to stop.

“I think we’ve got to give Rob Godfrey and the track team a lot of credit. The track wasn’t brilliant on Wednesday, for whatever reason it was very slick. Rob promised us a grippy track, and despite the sun coming out for today’s meeting, we had a grippy track on which we could really race on and have confidence in.”

 

Tremendous Theo

Tremendous Theo

Glasgow captain Theo Pijper superbly lead his side to a 48-41 win over Rye House yesterday by scoring a flawless 18-point maximum at Ashfield. The Tigers went into yesterdays match missing three of their septet but big performances from Pijper and Rusty Harrison made sure Glasgow took three league points.

Glasgow were missing new number one Victor Palovaara, Kevin Wolbert and the injured Dimitri Berge for the match against the Rockets but showed real guts and determination to come away with a big win in front of a depleted Ashfield crowd.

Realistic Glasgow team boss Stewart Dickson recognised after the meeting that Rye House would have been the pre-meeting favourites, he said, “Rye House will be kicking themselves they never beat us, we were there for the taking, but it’s amazing what team spirit can do.

“We targeted any win, I gave Rusty and Theo a target of between 28 and 30 points, but we got a lot more than that between the two of them, which is incredible. It’s a great three points because Plymouth are starting to put a bit of pressure on us now, we want to finish as high up the table as we can.”

Glasgow now face a tough weekend next week when they face a Workington side who are still chasing a play-off spot, Dickson continued, “It’s a big weekend next weekend with Workington home and away, they will be coming here to win and we’ll be going down there to win. It’s going to be two top matches.”
