REDCAR boss Gavin Parr says his side are “on guard” against a potentially dangerous Birmingham. 

The Bears look to cement their place in the top three of the Cab Direct Championship against the Brummies at the ECCO Arena tonight, live on BSN.

Parr has warned his side to be wary of the threat of the Brummies, who won at Berwick last week and are still chasing a Play-Off spot.

Parr said: “Birmingham have some good riders so we will have to be on our guard, we all know what Sedgy (Justin Sedgmen) can do around Redcar when he’s on it.

“Additionally, they have also brought in Richard Lawson as a guest which gives them even more top end power, but I’m confident in our boys to get the job done.”

The home side hope to welcome back No.1 Charles Wright after he missed their midweek southern tour with injury, whilst Richard Lawson guests at No.1 for the visitors.

Birmingham manager Stewart Dickson said: “Friday is another very big meeting for us.

“We again bring in Richard to lead us from the front at No.1 and we’re going there to get something out of it.

“We know it will be tough but we know we’re likely to need at least one more result away from home if we are to make it into that top six.”


REDCAR: Charles Wright, Danyon Hume, Connor Bailey, Erik Riss, Danny King, Jason Edwards, Luke Harrison.

BIRMINGHAM: Richard Lawson, Stefan Nielsen, Troy Batchelor, Alfie Bowtell, Justin Sedgmen, Sam Hagon, Paul Starke.
