BIRMINGHAM stage their final regular home league fixture of the season on Wednesday (September 6, 7.30) when they host Plymouth at Perry Barr.

The Curtis Sport Brummies have only enjoyed one win all year in front of their home supporters - and are looking to round off their Cab Direct Championship programme in the Second City with another.

It's certainly needed to keep their slim, outside play-off hopes alive in what has been another frustrating season for the Brummies.

Team manager Stewart Dickson said: "We certainly want to win it, of course we do.

“The form has been indifferent, shall we say, since I came in.

“There has been too many inconsistencies and that has been our problem.

"But the supporters have stuck by us and the riders need to reward them on Wednesday night by beating Plymouth and giving them something to cheer about."

Brummies also have the chance to claim what would be just their second aggregate point as well in addition, as they lead the Gladiators 47-42 from their long away trip back in May.

Birmingham have booked Lewis Kerr to guest at No.1 whilst Plymouth include strong British spearhead Kyle Howarth and Richie Worrall whilst James Pearson, who was axed by the Brummies mid-season, is one half of the visitors' reserve partnership.

Meanwhile, former team boss Phil Morris will also be in attendance as a special guest on Wednesday night.

The Welshman was in charge when the Brummies topped the regular top-flight table in 2013 and helped assemble their National League title winning side in 2015.

Morris is now the Sports Insure Premiership's CEO and FIM Race Director.

Club Director Paul Hunsdon said: "Phil and I go back a long way, having become firm friends at Reading back in the late '90's.

"What he has achieved within the sport after retiring from racing is phenomenal and I know he is really looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces, after being made so welcome by the fans during his time as a rider and manager for the Brummies".

A reminder it’s FREE admission for all children aged 11 and under at Perry Barr in 2023 while Juniors aged 12-16 will be admitted for just £3.

The pits will also be open until 6.45 where riders will be available for photographs and autographs.

Even once the night of enthralling Speedway racing commences, there will be a further opportunity for junior supporters to take part in the interval entertainment on the infield.

General admission can be pre-booked in advance via:
