Ingalls out for Workington Comets
Last updated at 13:23, Friday, 20 April 2012
Workington Comets will look to cement their place at the top of the Northern section of the League Cup this weekend but again will have to do without the services on Kenny Ingalls.
The Comets travel to Edinburgh tonight before hosting Newcastle at Derwent Park at 7pm tomorrow hoping to take another massive step to finishing top of the group.
The Comets are already seven points clear of Scunthorpe in second place with four matches left and two wins this weekend would seal their qualification at the top of the group.
However, Ingalls has been ruled out of the weekend matches as he still recovers from his shoulder injury but is due to be fit for the Comets next match away to Redcar on May 3.
Team manager Tony Jackson said: “Kenny is not far away but he won’t be riding this weekend.
“It is just a few days too early for him and we don’t want him to do any further damage in another match.
“We don’t want him coming back doing a ride or two, injuring himself and then putting him back even further.
“I had a good chat with him about it and he is only three or four days away and he will definitely be back for Redcar.
“We thought the best thing was to wait for him to be fully fit because we have a gap of 12 days after the Newcastle match.”
Comets owner Keith Denham added: “Kyle and Rusty know the Edinburgh track and Richard can hack it.”
Denham felt that the Comets had coped reasonably well using rider replacement in the absence of Ingalls but wanted a seven man team back as soon as possible.
Meanwhile the Workington Speedway Supporters Club have organised two events in the coming weeks.
Next week they have arranged for the Speedway Grand Prix to be shown live in the Waverley Hotel in Workington starting from 6pm as there is no home meeting next week.
They have then organised a race night in the hotel on June 8 with further details to follow.
