BIRMINGHAM owner David Mason admits making the play-offs is a big ask – but the team are ready to give it everything.

The Brummies face Edinburgh at Perry Barr tonight as they start a run of four remaining meetings with 11 points the target to overhaul Scunthorpe.

And Mason says it’s time to move on from the farce against Redcar last week when a long delay due to the visitors’ protest about track conditions caused some fans to walk out.

Mason will reveal his thoughts on that matter in tonight’s match programme and insists the track is getting better every week.

He said: “We need to move on from it because it’s a massive week and a bit coming up for the club now.

“Last Wednesday was a bit of a dent, but we are far from giving up on the play-offs and the boys will give it everything they’ve got over these final few meetings of the regular season.

“Edinburgh picking up four points at the weekend wasn't ideal - all that does do is ramp things up here tonight.

“It's in our hands - we know 11 points from these final four league meetings will see us pip Scunthorpe and while that is a big ask, we all know this group of boys will give it 110 per cent.”

James Shanes misses out with a wrist injury sustained racing grasstrack at the weeked and the rider replacement facility will be in operation.

Once again there will be extra racing for fans to enjoy after the main event with some individual action and some 125cc demonstration races at no extra cost to supporters.

Mason and father Peter are expected to make a decision on the future of the Brummies in the next six weeks ahead of the sport’s AGM after a troubled season for the club.

He will be keeping a close eye on crowd numbers again tonight with the club still hanging in the balance.

BIRMINGHAM: Chris Harris, Valentin Grobauer, James Shanes R/R, Ashley Morris, Erik Riss, Paco Castagna, Jack Thomas.

EDINBURGH: Sam Masters, Anders Rowe R/R, Kye Thomson, Josh Pickering, Richie Worrall, Drew Kemp, TBC.
