Witches Aim To Repel Scorpions This Week
The Ipswich 'Sackers' Witches welcome the 'FluidAir Power' Scunthorpe Scorpions to Foxhall for a Premier League meeting on Thursday night.
Following a very eventful meeting two weeks ago between these two teams at the Eddie Wright Raceway both teams will be missing a key rider. Scunthorpe number one Josh Auty is on the injured list with a broken hand and Ipswich will be without Rohan Tungate as he is serving a 21-day ban, which started last Friday (July 24th).
The Scorpions have brought in Thomas Jorgensen as a guest to cover for Josh and Matt Williamson will ride in place of their injured reserve Ben Wilson (broken pelvis). Ipswich will use R/R to cover for Rohan at number two with Cameron Heeps moving to number four.
After last week's home loss against Glasgow Ipswich need to put that behind them and focus on getting to the Playoffs, starting with a three point win on Thursday.
This week's meeting is sponsored by R N Euston.
