Scorpions look to set marker
HENDERSON INSURANCE Scunthorpe Scorpions head to Peterborough tonight (Tuesday, 7.30pm) for their final league meeting of the season in the SGB Championship.
In late March, Scunthorpe started their league meetings at the East Of England Showground, and now – six months later – they will complete them at the same venue.
Whatever the result of the meeting, Scorpions will finish ninth out of ten teams in the SGB Championship final table.
Scunthorpe promoter Rob Godfrey says: “The meeting at Peterborough is of no importance when it comes to the final league table. We’re simply racing for pride on that score.
“However, if we can put in a decent performance tonight, we can perhaps shake Peterborough’s confidence ahead of Friday, when the two clubs meet at the Eddie Wright Raceway in a far more vital Knockout Cup clash.”
Scorpions’ expected line-up for tonight: 1. Lewis Kerr, 2. Jake Allen, 3. Michael Palm Toft, 4. Ryan Douglas (pictured), 5. Josh Auty (captain), 6. Tero Aarnio, 7. Josh Bailey.
