STOKE Easy Rider Potters are ruing two defeats in seven days in the Premier Trophy competition.
Only Barrie Evans and Robbie Kessler could feel any satisfaction in their performances after Saturday's 51-44 home defeat to Glasgow.
The visitors won 12 of the 15 heats and were never once behind in the meeting, with Danny Bird and Robert Ksiezak in particular looking very sharp in what was a solid team effort.
Potters promoter Dave Tattum said: 'It's never nice losing anywhere, but it's even worse in front of your own supporters and there are one or two in-house issues that will have to be addressed.'
Evans got his 12+2 score but often missed the gate.
He said: 'Thankfully, I had a bit of speed and I was quite determined to try to do my bit for the side. I got past Shane Parker in Heat nine and then had a terrific battle with Lee Dicken in Heat 12.'
Earlier in the week, The Potters went down 57-38 at Sheffield where Alan Mogridge was, according to team manager John Adams, harshly excluded while leading Heat Four.
Mark Lemon broke a chain while leading and Robbie Kessler bizarrely stopped when he mistakenly thought he saw the red lights come on.
Adams said: 'We had some bad luck and were on the wrong end of some poor refereeing decisions but that's the way it goes.
'We rode better than the score suggests.
'Luke Priest did well to notch 7+2. He has had a couple of good away scores now and, hopefully, that will do his confidence a bit of good.' nStoke SAS Spitfires put up a good display at Boston on Friday before going down 51-44.
Manager John Woolridge said: 'Considering that some of the lads have hardly raced for three or four weeks, I thought we did quite well.'
Stoke SAS Spitfires take on Rye House at Loomer Road tonight at
7.30pm and the Easy Rider Potters host Kings Lynn on Saturday, starting at 7.30pm.
