Devils arenaPLYMOUTH Devils hope to be at full strength on Friday evening when they stage their first home meeting for three weeks with a Premier League match against Redcar at the St Boniface Arena (7.15pm).

Skipper Kyle Newman is set to return from a broken collarbone while reserve Stefan Nielsen hopes to be fit again after recovering from a hand injury.

Team manager Lee Trigger said: “Kyle is due to race for his Elite League side Poole in their home match against Coventry on Wednesday evening and it will be good for us that he gets a meeting under his belt before Friday.

“Similarly, Stefan is due to ride for Swindon in their Elite League match at home to Belle Vue on Thursday.

“It will be good to track a full-strength side and we will be looking for a long-awaited three points against Redcar to start trying to get up to where we want to be in the league.”
