The Scotwaste Monarchs are refreshed after their visit to Suffolk on Thursday evening and now look forward to the visit of Glasgow Tigers to Armadale this evening.

Both sides have been forced to make changes ahead of tonight's match. In falling during his second race last night at Ipswich Aaron Fox has partly reopened his leg wound so he will not be in action tonight. Cradley's National League rider Max Clegg will take his place.

For the Tigers, Rusty Harrison is suffering from severe migraine headaches and will be absent tonight. Rider replacement will cover for that and Andre Compton will come in to replace Dimitri Berge.

With their unbeaten run continuing at Ipswich on Thursday night the Scotwaste Monarchs look to reach another milestone tonight. Their aim is to go from the start of the season to the end of May unbeaten. We're searching the record books to see if that has ever happened before.

The great 1991 Arena Essex team certainly didn't manage it. Their 23 match unbeaten run didn't start until 22nd June, when they scraped home against Edinburgh by 47 to 43. However they lost many matches before that, including defeat at Peterborough by 65 to 24 and later in April by 63 to 27 at Exeter.

The weather is perfect for tonight's big match and a big turnout is expected.
