Diamonds back on the road to Sheffield tonight.
Wednesday 11th September 2019, 10:17 UK
STEVE PARK
Newcastle BTS Diamonds travel to South Yorkshire hoping to repeat the success of last season, having just about dried out from the rain sodden trip to Glasgow last night!
 
The Diamonds won 55-35 at the big Owlerton circuit, the only member of the team that day still at the club is Matty Wethers, but he misses the meeting due to the groin injury suffered at Berwick last week, and Rider Replacement will again be used.
Ulrich Ostergaard will be hoping to go as well as he did when winning the Premier League Riders Championship back in 2015 and Thomas Jorgensen should enjoy the wide expanses of the fast Owlerton track. Lasse Bjerre is a former Tiger, so will also want to do well.
The meeting was originally planned for July but that was rained off, as was the re-staging a fortnight ago, so better weather is most certainly hoped for tonight.
The hosts are without shoulder injury victim Kyle Howarth and have called in Jake Allen as a guest replacement.
The Tigers need to take three points tonight and four points in both of their remaining away meetings, at Edinburgh on Friday and at Glasgow on Saturday to take the last play-off place. Failure to do so will mean Somerset Rebels would finish in the top four.
Line-ups: Sheffield: Danny King, Josh MacDonald, Justin Sedgmen, Todd Kurtz, Jake Allen (guest), Zaine Kennedy, Broc Nicol.
Diamonds: Steve Worrall, Max Clegg, Lasse Bjerre, Rider Replacement for Matty Wethers, Thomas Jorgensen, Ulrich Ostergaard, Danny Phillips.
