PREVIEW: Cheetahs Look to Continue 100% Bonus Point Record

The Monarch Oxford Cheetahs make the long trip North tomorrow (Friday) when they take on the Scunthorpe Scorpions at the Eddie Wright Raceway in Scunthorpe.

The Scorpions sit on top of the Championship table and have only been beaten once, to the Cheetahs last Wednesday. Oxford have yet to win on the road this year and whilst they will be looking for the win, the twenty-one-point lead from the first leg should be enough for the Cheetahs to claim the all-important bonus point.

Team Manager Peter Schroeck is positive
“We go there in a positive frame of mind because we showed last season what we can do. We’ll aim to keep it tight and see what we can do”

Oxford continue to be without Henry Atkins and will give Charger Jody Scott another opportunity in the reserve berth, alongside Ashton Boughen.

Ellie Rose Travel Scunthorpe Scorpions: 1. Kyle Howarth, 2. Michael Palm Toft R/R, 3. Simon Lambert (captain), 4. Connor Mountain, 5. Jake Allen, 6. Nathan Ablitt, 7. Luke Harrison.

Monarch Oxford Cheetahs: 1. Sam Masters, 2. Luke Killeen, 3. Jordan Jenkins, 4. Cameron Heeps, 5. Scott Nicholls (captain), 6. Ashton Boughen, 7. Jody Scott.
