Glasgow Tigers skipper Aaron Summers is relishing the challenge of facing old rival Craig Cook at Ashfield on Sunday (tapes-up 5pm).
Success-hungry Tigers square-up to Workington Comets who are led by the Great Britain international who was also once captain of Edinburgh Monarchs.
Cook is in fine form and has 28 points in two matches this week in speedway’s top league, the SGB Premiership, including a 15-point maximum away from home.
And the man nicknamed The Cookie Monster is a former track record holder at Glasgow.
Summers, who also once rode for Edinburgh, is the current record holder they go head-to-head in the opening race. and the Aussie said: “It’s not like he’s (Cook) unbeatable around there.
“He is good on a bike and he is talented, but anyone could come there and win a race if they’ve got the skills.”
It is only Glasgow’s third home match of the season and Summers said: “No match is easy so all the boys have to be on top form. If they are, we should do it.”
Meanwhile, Edinburgh Monarchs travel to Scunthorpe Scorpions (tapes-up 5.30pm) and chairman Alex Harkess wants an improved performance.
His men beat Reading Bears 52-40 in the Championship at Armadale on Friday but Harkess felt they took too long to tame the visitors.
And he said: “We can get better.”
