The Comets are back to full strength this weekend with the return of skipper Craig Cook and reserve James Sarjeant following their recent injuries.
Craig successfully came through his comeback meeting at Belle Vue on Monday evening while James had a spin out in a Fours meeting at Sheffield last night.
Both riders will now take their place in the Comets side that takes on Scunthorpe at Derwent Park on Saturday night (5th August) with the action getting underway at 7:00pm.
On their previous visit back in April the Scorpions pushed the Comets all the way before going down 48-45 to the home side.
Leading their charge was their skipper Michael Palm Toft, who racked up a 17-point haul on what he calls his favourite British track and no doubt he will be keen to do that again on Saturday.
Sunday sees the Comets head to Peterborough for the Championship Fours, which is one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the domestic calendar and this year features all ten Championship sides, with the racing getting underway at 2:00pm.
