🏁 Tuesday night speedway under the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium floodlights features Glasgow Tigers against Leicester Lions in the second leg of their Championship play-off final. Tapes-up is at 7.30pm and tickets are available.
Glasgow Tigers are on a mission for silverware tonight but it won’t be easy as they seek to overturn a 12-point deficit from the first leg.
Tigers were on the wrong end of a 51-39 reverse at Leicester Lions Speedway Track on Saturday night and a fast start for the Glasgow side is essential in front of what is guaranteed to be a noisy home support this evening at Ashfield.
The Lions are formidable opponents having finished top of the league at the end of the regular season, pipping the Tigers to top spot by just two points.
In the play-off semi-final Glasgow Tigers beat Somerset 93-87 on aggregate to make it to their second final in five seasons, while Leicester Lions saw of Redcar Bears.
Will it be Tigers or Lions who roar loudest tonight? One thing is for sure: ecstasy and despair await in equal measure with only one team holding aloft the SGBC Grand Final trophy at the end of the night.
Ones to watch: Glasgow’s Craig Cook. Named as Great Britain captain for the FIM Speedway of Nations finals earlier this season the Tigers skipper has been in scintillating form this campaign, most recently winning the Championship Pairs at Somerset joined by Rasmus Jensen. A result that saw Glasgow Tigers win the trophy for the first time since James Grieves and Joe Screen took victory in 2011.
Doors open at 5pm ahead of tapes-up at 7.30pm.
Tickets available in advance via the ‘Get Tickets’ tab or by phone 0800 916 0087.
