Sometimes we awaiting rain breaking out on a Friday but this week we have no such worries and, instead, we are awaiting the sun breaking through. It's been a fine day, in fact a fine week at Armadale and we're looking forward to our meeting with Scunthorpe getting underway at 7.30pm.
There has been a late change in the Scunthorpe team with Ryan Douglas going down with food poisoning. He's unable to make the journey and the Scorpions have chosen to cover his rides with rider replacement. That gives the opportunity to any of the Scunthorpe team to take an extra ride. That certainly won't weaken the Scorpions as there are riders in their team more expert in riding Armadale.
It seems that the good weather will bring out a good crowd tonight. Advance ticket sales are higher than for any league match last season with many newcomers also buying tickets.
The Parsons Peebles Monarchs will appear in their brand new race jackets for the first time this season.
