Ipswich pulled off a good draw at Newcastle just six days previous, and were fired up to do the same or better at Berwick last night, and armed with former Bandit, Ben Barker as a guest for the inured Danny King, their heads were high as Berwick replaced Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen (away on Danish Championship duty) with Glasgow's Paul Starke.

Witches swoop into Shielfield tonight at seven!

The Ipswich Witches materialise tonight in the Borders tonight at 7.00pm on a quest for SGB Championship League points, and have drafted in an ex-Bandit to lead them from the top.

Danny King was involved in a heavy smash a couple of weeks ago with the initial fear of a break being replaced by ligament and soft tissue damage, which was a relief, but has kept the Witches' number out of action and as a result Ben Barker makes a return tonight as a shrewd guest replacement.

Get well soon Mitchell Davey

Everyone at Berwick Bandits Speedway Club sends their best wishes to Mitchell Davey for a full and speedy recovery from injuries sustained in an accident last night at Birmingham.

Scott Courtney said this morning: “Our thoughts are with Mitch, his family, his closest friends and team mates at the moment. We are pleased to receive some clarification on his condition via his website and although his injuries sound horrific, it’s a relief to hear that he is stable.

The sides rode to a cracking draw just 24 hours earlier, but the Berwick Bandits believed they missed out on a win having been eight up twice in the match, so returned home to Shielfield Park last night to welcome the Workington Comets with the aim of no tripping up and getting that win second time round, but the pre-meeting feeling was it was going to be another close one, and how right that was.
