Comets cling on to title hopes

The speedway season is reaching a crescendo and the Comets are still alive in three competitions after they beat Edinburgh to stay afloat in the play-offs.

Workington were then leading Ipswich in the League Cup semi-final before that was abandoned.

They're still involved in the Knock-out cup, but they lost Saturday night's semi-final first leg at Newcastle by 18 points. Berwick Bandits still have the chance to salvage something from their frustrating season.

The win over Redcar Bears on Saturday means they're well placed to make progress in the Premier Clubs Trophy. The Bandits can make the final as long as they evade a big defeat when they go to Glasgow next Sunday.

Track staff worked hard to clear the track but the incessant drizzle meant it wasn't in a fit state to race and safety would be an issue.

A re-arranged date hasn't been fixed yet.

In the Friday meeting Workington Comets lost to Edinburgh.
