The Comets got their 2014 League Cup campaign off to a winning start last Saturday with a 60-31 victory over Glasgow.
Despite both Ricky Wells and Ashley Morris being in Elite League action at Leicester for their parent club Wolverhampton, eight points (plus two bonus) from Ricky's Rider Replacement outings and six points (plus three bonus) from Ashley's guest replacement, ex-Comet Chris Schramm, gave more than adequate back-up as the Comets led throughout.

Five of the six Comets won at least one race while the sixth, guest Chris Schramm, took two paid wins, and was involved in two of the Comets seven 5-1 scores.

Meanwhile, number one Josh Grajczonek raced to an untroubled five-ride paid maximum, while Rene Bach dropped just a single point to the opposition in his six outings when he was out-gated by his team-mate from last year, testimonial man Rusty Harrison in heat 7.

Overall, an entertaining match, which was closer on track than the score suggests and a good start for the Comets, whose next League Cup tie is up at Glasgow next Sunday, 6th April, starting at 3:00pm.
