Berwick’s speedway Bandits have not lost on a Saturday night since the start of May, but face a stern test this weekend as reigning Premier League champions Scunthorpe Scorpions arrive at Shielfield Park.

The Borders club will line up without injured Danish favourite Nicki Barrett, who faces a couple more weeks on the sidelines following his painful shoulder dislocation.

Newcastle rookie Lewis Kerr will ride in place of Barrett as a guest reserve, while Bandits’ skipper Kozza Smith starts after recovering from an ear infection.
