SPEEDWAY: AFTER a delayed start due to an electrical problem, Stoke Potters and Glasgow produced a Premier Trophy meeting on Saturday, writes NEIL EVANS.
The clash ended all-square at 45-45. Glasgow started with maximum points before the Potters evened things up in the next, and that is the way it stayed until the halfway stage.
Alan Mogridge had an engine failure in heat nine and with Paul Clews also suffering with machinery problems all night, the visitors went six points up with just two heats to go.
Rob Grant and Mogridge then shut out James Grieves in heat 14 to set up a terrific last-heat decider.
Paul Pickering led from George Stancl and as Stancl passed, Jan Staechmann went by them both for a 4-2 that earned Stoke the draw.
'It was a terrific meeting and a fair result in the end,' said Potters promoter Dave Tattum.
This weekend, Potters take on Work-ington in a Bank Holiday double header. The home leg is at Loomer Road on Saturday with Potters heading to Cumbria for the return on Monday.
