The Comets injury problems have continued with the news that reserve Ashley Morris now faces up to two months out of the sport following a crash.
While riding for parent club Wolves, Ashley fell heavily in his second ride at King's Lynn on Wednesday night and was soon transferred to a local hospital.
Ashley was moved to hospital in Cambridge overnight for treatment to slight bleeding on the brain. He has been ruled out of racing for 6-8 weeks.
The Comets will utilise Sheffield rider Taylor Poole as a guest for Ashley this coming Saturday when they entertain Edinburgh.
Comets owner Laura Morgan said: Naturally we wish him a full and speedy recovery but he will have to heed the advice of the doctors before taking to the track again. It is a major blow for him and the team"
Team Manager Tony Jackson added: "In the short term we will use guests, but we may have to look at bringing in a temporary signing. In the meantime it is important for Ashley to get well again."
