Edwards: Let’s get back in the mix!
Flying Redcar reserve, Jason Edwards has challenged his side to remain in the play-off hunt and upset the applecart as Redcar travel north to take on Glasgow in the Cab Direct Championship play-offs with tapes up at 2pm at the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium.
Edwards, who is in fine recent form, remains in confident mood ahead of Redcar’s second play-off clash, “ We won earlier at Glasgow earlier this season and we have some really good track specialists in Connor (Bailey) and Danyon (Hume) as they absolutely love the place! We have got to get as many points on the board as possible so if we can go and win at Glasgow today then we are right back in the mix!”
The Bears asset is over the moon with his recent form, “ My scores in the past few meetings have been really good, especially as quite a lot of the meetings have been in the Sports Insure Premiership with Sheffield. Also, I was pretty happy personally with my 10 points last night but a lot of the Oxford match was dependent on your gate due to the weather, but I’m not complaining!”
After Redcar’s home defeat last night against Oxford, Edwards believes his side have nothing to lose ahead of today’s big clash, “ We have nothing to lose, with this being a mini league, it’s even more important that we go there and win! At the end of the day, we all want to score as many points as possible so we’ll see how it goes!”
Redcar bring in Birmingham’s Justin Sedgmen to guest in place of the stricken Charles Wright whilst Luke Harrison continues to deputise for the injured Jake Mulford. Additionally, the aforementioned pair of Danyon Hume and Connor Bailey will be looking to add to their combined paid 20 points that they have scored at Glasgow so far this season.
Meanwhile, Glasgow also have injury concerns with Jack Smith coming in to guest for the injured Ace Pijper whilst they also continue to operate rider replacement for Claus Vissing who is struggling with a knee injury.
