EDINBURGH added the Premier League Knockout Cup to the League Cup with victory over Ipswich last week, leaving the PL title itself to contest this weekend.
The Monarchs won at Foxhall and completed the KO Cup success at Armadale, with boss Alex Harkess saying: “It was a good meeting and I enjoyed it – eventually!”
GLASGOW boss Stewart Dickson is calling on his riders to attack the track as they bid to end the season with a flourish in Sunday's double-header against Workington and Berwick.
Dickson said: “I know Newcastle's Danny King smashed the track record to bits last time and as he left the stadium, he came over to me and a couple of track staff, and said to us, 'That track was perfect.' It's nice to hear that, but I'd prefer to hear that from my own riders."
IPSWICH bring down the curtain on their 2014 with the traditional 16-Lap Classic at Foxhall on Thursday – with the final race being a gruelling test of man and machine.
Co-promoter Chris Louis said: “I know from my own experiences that I faced the 16 lap final with dread and excitement in equal measure, a real mental and physical battle that can really only be attacked with one tactic. Qualify well, race from the back grid and attack from the off!
“Speedway is raced over four laps and that's how you get conditioned, it's really quite amazing how tough it becomes when you change that and each rider taking part on Thursday will be feeling the effects after just 6 – 8 laps, it becomes a mental battle and mind over matter from that point on!”
SOMERSET defend the Premier League title when they face Edinburgh home and away this weekend in a repeat of the 2013 Final.
Promoter Debbie Hancock said: “This is what we have been battling for all season. Having won the title last year, we are determined to make a successful defence of our crown, but by the same token Edinburgh will be looking to avenge last year's Final defeat.
“Our two matches against Edinburgh already this year have shown that there is little to choose between the two sides on aggregate and there is no reason to believe that the Final will be any different.”
