SCUNTHORPE take on Championship newcomers Kent at the Eddie Wright Raceway this evening as they look to maintain their winning run at home.
Kent previously visited the North Lincolnshire track in 2014 in the National League in 2014 but this is the first time they have faced the Scorpions. Kings are led by seven-time British Champion Scott Nicholls, who has been in impressive form this season.
Scunthorpe have won all six league meetings at home, although they were made to work hard against a spirited Berwick Bandits side last Friday.
Home No.1 Adam Ellis is missing, tonight’s clash as he is on Great Britain duty in Hungary on Saturday evening in the European Pairs Championship alongside Chris Harris and Tom Brennan. Former Scorpion Steve Worrall comes in as a guest for Ellis.
SCUNTHORPE: Steve Worrall, Simon Lambert, Theo Pijper, Tero Aarnio, Thomas Jorgensen, Jordan Palin, Josh MacDonald.
KENT: Scott Nicholls, Tom Bacon R/R, Paul Starke, Paul Hurry, Cameron Heeps, Ben Morley, Dan Gilkes, Jake Mulford.
