Newcastle Diamonds have the best record of any team visiting Armadale.

And Diamonds will be looking for revenge after Monarchs held the Brough Park men to a 45-45 draw on Tyneside last Sunday.

Diamonds built an eight point lead before the Monarchs turned the tide in the second half of a meeting with only a last heat Diamonds 5-1 salvaging a draw.

Both teams strengths are at the top end of the line-ups however Newcastle are forced into a change as their No 1 Robert Lambert is racing for Great Britain under 21’s.

Glasgow captain and winner of last week’s heat 15 decider Aaron Summers steps in.

Summers will be backed up by ex-Monarch Steve Worrall, Ludvig Lindgren, who raced to two maximum scores while deputising for the Monarchs last season and Lewis Rose who is making great strides in the sport.

Alex Harkess, Monarchs co-promoter, said: “We accept that Edinburgh v Newcastle matches are tough.

“It’s not unusual to win the away tie and lose the home one when we have raced each other. None the less, we always set out to win at home and this week is no different.”’
