EDINBURGH and Somerset both have injury worries ahead of this weekend’s Premier League Grand Final.
The Monarchs saw Steve Worrall sidelined with a broken wrist when he crashed at Wolverhampton on Tuesday racing for Cradley in the first leg of the National League Grand Final against Coventry.
The Rebels will be without skipper Oliver Allen, who sustained a shoulder injury when he took a tumble during the Polish Speedway Second League play-off final between Ostrow and Krakow last weekend.
Edinburgh will use rider replacement for Worrall, while Somerset have booked Rye House’s Edward Kennett to deputise for Allen in their home leg on Friday, whilst Redcar’s Aaron Summers come in at Edinburgh on Saturday.
Rebels boss Garry May said: “This is an obvious blow. Olly was desperate to ride but once he knew that he would not be 100 per cent for these matches, he had no option but to withdraw from the team.”
