HITMEN v KENT - PREVIEW

Friday September 21, 2018
THE second meeting of the afternoon sees’ the Hitmen take on play-off chasing Kent who have virtually confirmed their place in the end of season play-ffs, although they will want to take something out of the meeting in an attempt to cement second position in the table.

Kyle Bickley comes in as a replacement for the injured Paul Hurry and he will receive solid support from skipper Jack Thomas, Nathan Stoneman and Anders Rowe with Taylor Hampshire always capable of a big score along with reserve Alex Spooner who has also put in some good scores this year. Kent have yet to name the final rider in their septet.

Hitmen team manager Josh Moss said “Kent have ridden well all season and are gunning for runners-up spot in the league table. They have again had a good season and will be a force to be reckoned with and having had the first meeting hopefully to race in we should be dialled into the track and hopefully we can catch Kent cold and take advantage of that.”

BUXTON: Ben Wilson, Lewis Whitmore, Connor Coles, Tom Woolley (Captain), James Cockle R/R, Kieran Douglas, Corban Pavitt
KENT: Kyle Bickley, Anders Rowe, Nathan Stoneman, Taylor Hampshire, Jack Thomas (Captain), TBC, Alex Spooner
