Lakeside Hammers will now head to Scunthorpe this evening for a clash with one of the in-form sides at the start of the season.

The Scorpions, however, have major problems to contend with, as the long-term absence of skipper Steve Worrall has been compounded by two further injuries this week.

Stand-in skipper Jason Garrity crashed out of a guest booking at Belle Vue on Monday, whilst Stefan Nielsen broke his leg 48 hours later in a crash at Poole.

The full make-up of the Scorpions side is therefore to be confirmed, whilst the Hammers will be without Ben Morley as they await news of the extent of his wrist injury following his crash at Redcar.

Manager Will Pottinger said: “Ben went to the hospital and there’s obviously some damage, but we won’t know how much until he’s had x-rays or maybe even until the swelling goes down.

“We hope it’s not too bad, but he definitely won’t be riding on Friday, and our only option is rider-replacement which gives more rides to Kyle (Newman) and the reserves.

“Hopefully that will work okay, especially if Zach (Wajtknecht) carries on with how he’s going at the moment.

“I believe Scunthorpe are missing a few riders which is unfortunate for them, but obviously we’ll try to make the most of the opportunity.”

SCUNTHORPE: Steve Worrall (guest or R/R), Stefan Nielsen (guest or R/R), Josh Auty, Jake Allen, Jason Garrity (guest or R/R), Danny Phillips, Gino Manzares.

LAKESIDE: Nick Morris, Ben Morley R/R, Adam Ellis, Kyle Newman, Richard Lawson, Zach Wajtknecht, Alfie Bowtell
