PLYMOUTH Devils will be looking for their third successive home win when they take on second-in-the-table Glasgow in a Premier League match at the St Boniface Arena on Friday (7.15pm).
They retain the line-up that beat Berwick last Friday, although team manager Lee Trigger hopes Stefan Nielsen will have recovered from a hand injury to be able to take his place as partner to Jack Holder.
Nielsen has not ridden for the Devils since the away match at Newcastle on July 3. If he is still unfit, Plymouth will again use the rider replacement facility to cover his absence.
Trigger warns that his side will need to be on top form against Glasgow, adding: “Glasgow will provide us with a stiff test and we will have to be on our mettle, but, hopefully, we can collect another three league points.”
Glasgow will be without Rene Bach, who is competing in a Danish League fixture, and injured reserve Danny Ayres. They will operate rider replacement for Bach and use a guest, still to be named, in place of Ayres.
Leading the Tigers will be skipper Australian Aaron Summers with the main support coming from British riders Richard Lawson and Richie Worrall. Completing the visiting side will be Fernando Garcia from Argentina and reserve Nike Lunna from Finland.
Plymouth: Jack Holder, Stefan Nielsen (or rider replacement), Steve Boxall, Todd Kurtz, Kyle Newman. Reserves: Sam Simota, Ellis Perks.
Glasgow: Aaron Summers, rider replacement for Rene Bach, Richie Worrall, Fernando Garcia, Richard Lawson. Reserves: Nike Lunna, guest for Danny Ayres.
