Berwick Speedway will be back in action this weekend with two meetings on Friday and Saturday.

The Bandits will race at Somerset on Friday, before taking on Scunthorpe at Shielfield 24 hours later - two teams who are also involved in the race for the play-offs.

And the good news for Bandits’ fans is that skipper Matty Wethers is considering a return to racing, three weeks after his horror smash in the televised home league meeting against Edinburgh.

Wethers had hoped to return to action last weekend against Redcar, but opted instead to try a few practice laps in the second half.

Wethers drops to reserve under the new averages for September and, if fit, is likely to wear the number seven race-jacket.

Berwick will also have David Bellego back in their side following his omission at the weekend due to the European U21 Finals,

Unfortunately, the meeting in Rybnik,southern Poland, was postponed, and will be re-scheduled for a later date.
