The Newcastle "Boiler Technical Services" Diamonds have revenge in mind for tonight's clash at Brough Park when the Berwick Bandits drop by after taking a 52-38 win over the Diamonds last night in Tweedmouth.
It was a tough start for the Diamonds as it was the home side who romped to the early lead, taking a 14-point advantage with a score of 19-5, including three Bandits 5-1s and a 4-2 in Heat Four which was briefly led by Thomas Jorgensen who passed Nikolaj Buck Jakobsen who powered up to repass the Diamond off bend two.

Newcastle made a far better stab of Heat Five with Steve Worrall (pictured above) and Simon Lambert chasing hard behind Dany Gappmaier until the Bandits' Austrian dramatically came to a halt allowing both Newcastle men through to take an away 1-5 narrowing the gap to 20-10, but Doolan and Summers were back on it in Heat Six over Jorgensen to restore the home side's 14 point advantage while Lasse Bjerre overcame his mechanical gremlins and took his first ride in Heat seven and took second behind Busk Jakobsen in a shared 3-3.​

In Heat Nine Newcastle replaced Clegg with Worrall as a tactical substitute, and it was Worrall who forced his way to the front round Etheridge on bend two to take an easy win as part of a Diamonds' 2-4 with Jorgensen to take the score on the night to 35-19 before Bjerre and Wethers tightened the match up again after a solid gate in Heat 10 over the usually dominant Summers/ Doolan partnership to go into the interval 36-24.​

Out of the interval and Worrall was battling hard with Garcia off bend two when the Bandit appeared to shed a chain and ground to a halt allowing Newcastle to take a 2-4 to edge back within 10 of he Bandits, but the home side's Gappmaier rocketed to a fine win in the 11th after an initial battle with Bjerre over the first lap, going 12-up again for Berwick.​

Worrall won the tightest of battles on the opening bend of Heat 13 pulling ahead of Summers who came round Jorgensen for second and again put jus 10 points between the sides, but Etheridge, blasting wide off bend two round Wethers and Garcia teamed up for another Berwick 5-1 in Heat 14 putting the result, and the full three Shield points into the Bandits' coffers.​

Tonight the sides are hard at it again with a 6.30pm start time when the Diamonds have only victory, and a sizeable victory at that, in mind - and Stevie is keen to start where he left of just 24 hours earlier.
