Andersen: There’s much more to come!
Redcar’s Danish star Kasper Andersen has promised the Redcar faithful that there’s much more to come from him this season as the Bears travel north to face Andersen’s old club, Berwick. The Championship clash is a 19:00 start at Shielfield Park this evening.
The 2019 KO Cup winner said, “I need to start gating better, that has been something that I have missed so far this season.”
The Dane knows his side must bounce back after a defeat at home to Poole 24 hours ago, “Things didn’t go our way but we will regroup and go again, it’s a long season and we will bounce back.”
Andersen also discussed his return to Berwick in Bears colours, “I’m a little bit nervous ahead of the meeting. I’m looking forward to going back to Berwick, it’s a good club and it’s a track that I like. Berwick is one of my favourite clubs along with Redcar.”
The Dane also discussed Redcar’s chances ahead of the clash, “I fancy our chances, if you look at each rider against our opposite number we should be aiming for a positive result but it is their home circuit so it will be tough.”
Redcar have a strong recent record at Berwick, the Bears have won on their last two visits. In 2021, Charles Wright hit a memorable maximum. Wright was again in the points back in 2019 with paid 13 whilst Erik Riss weighed in with paid 12.
Redcar are at full strength and looking to make amends after their home defeat to Poole. On the other hand, Berwick are without Chris Harris and Ty Proctor, Harris is riding in Europe on Great Britain duty whilst Proctor is still feeling the effects of his crash at Newcastle. The Bandits have brought in 2 of their former riders to guest in their place. Nick Morris comes in at 1 whilst Newcastle’s Lee Complin comes into the reserve berth to partner Kyle Bickley. Additionally, Berwick are forced to run rider replacement with Leon Flint still recovering from a shoulder dislocation.
