Gladiators v The Brummies – Team News

The Plymouth Westcolour Gladiators return to action at The Coliseum tonight in a vital Championship League fixture.

Following yesterday’s full update on the latest injury information from The Gladiators, we can confirm the declared team for tonight.

Richie Worrall (Guest for Edward Kennett)

R/R for Alfie Bowtell

Lewis Kerr (Guest for Michael Palm Toft)

Danyon Hume (for Hans Andersen)

Josh Pickering (for Ben Barker)

Ben Morley

Harry McGurk

The Rider Replacement facility will allow the rider with the average above Alfie (in this instance Michael Palm-Toft) guest replacement, Lewis Kerr to take an additional ride with reserves Ben Morley and Harry McGurk taking the other scheduled rides. 

Although Lewis Kerr has a higher average than Danyon Hume who replaces Hans Andersen for the night, it is the average of the rider who is injured and being replaced that determines the Plymouth Team order this evening, therefore as Michael is 4th in the Team Averages, Lewis will get the extra R/R ride.

Our visitors the Birmingham Brummies, have also been beset by their own injury concerns to Josh Auty, Stefan Neilsen, Ashley Morris and James Shanes and are also without Claus Vissing who is deemed to be withholding his services.  

They will line up with a cosmopolitan and entertaining looking septet of:

Kye Thomson (Guest for Josh Auty)

Jacob Hook (Guest for Ashley Morris)

R/R for Stefan Nielsen 

Broc Nichol (Guest for Claus Vissing)

Justin Sedgeman

Lee Complin (Guest for James Shanes)
