SKIPPER James Shanes insists Birmingham owe it to their supporters ahead of another tough test against Redcar at Perry Barr on Wednesday (7.30).

Edwards Plumbing Brummies have lost their last two fixtures to high flying Glasgow but are looking forward to getting back in front of their home supporters where they have won four of their last five home meetings.

Shanes is anticipating another close contest against the Bears from Teesside but hopes a sense of unity can pull them through.

“We’ve had a tough couple of meetings but we’ve been missing a few riders which is never ideal,” Shanes said.

“July was always going to be a tough month anyway with the fixtures we’d got but after two defeats on the trot we want to turn it around.

“We’ll certainly be giving it everything we’ve got and we’ll be working hard behind the scenes in the build-up too.

“The supporters have been great again this season and we just need them to stick with us.

“We’ve got a team who always give it 110 per cent and we’re desperate to try and get another win on the board.

“Redcar have made some team changes and they’ve become stronger for it, but we’ve been riding well at home lately and it should be another good meeting for the fans to come and watch.”

Brummies will again be without injured duo Tero Aarnio and Ashley Morris. Club bosses have moved early to book British Finalist Danny Ayres who is in the form of his life and recorded a career best score at Championship level just over a week ago.

Up to 25 supporters will again have the opportunity to watch three races from the Perry Barr infield with the recently launched Centre Green Experience.

Tickets to watch Heats 12-14 will be on sale upon entry to the stadium for just £3 per person and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

Supporters should also note the scheduled away league fixture at Eastbourne will now have a new date which will be confirmed in due course.
