Friday night speedway under the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium floodlights sees Glasgow Tigers take on Leicester Lions in the first leg of a Championship double-header between the teams this weekend. Tapes-up is at 7.30pm and tickets are available.
The waiting is over for this eagerly anticipated clash between two of the form sides in the SGB Championship.
Glasgow Tigers are on a mission for silverware this season and it’s so far so good in the league with the Ashfield side having made a confident start to their 2019 Championship campaign. But tonight is a true test of their title credentials with high-flying Leicester Lions (top of the table at the time of writing) the visitors.
Will it be Tigers or Lions reign supreme tonight? One things for sure the speedway claws will be out at Ashfield, with no quarter asked or given. And for the loser there is an immediate opportunity for redemption with the teams due to meet again in just 24 hours at Beaumont Park
One to watch: Glasgow’s Craig Cook – named as Great Britain captain for the FIM Speedway of Nations finals earlier this month – has been in scintillating form for the Tigers this season.
Doors open at 5pm ahead of tapes-up at 7.30pm.
