Redcar star Connor Bailey has insisted that there were plenty of positives to take against Scunthorpe, despite the Bears going down 52-38 in Lincolnshire. Bailey and his Bears teammates are looking to bounce
back when they take to home shale for the first time this season against Workington tomorrow (Friday 12th April) with tapes up at 7:30 at the ECCO Arena.

Bailey, in his 2nd year as a Bear, has insisted that his side had positives to look at, despite defeat at Scunthorpe, " Charles (Wright) was superb but I was really impressed with Ben (Trigger) and Jason (Edwards) who rode really well and attacked the track, especially Ben as it was his first meeting as a Redcar rider which is a really good sign."

Bailey, an ex Workington Comet is determined to get back on track with a win, " It's about getting out there, getting dialled in and bouncing back with a win!"

The British U21 champion is also excited to see how his partnership with Jonas Knudsen develops, " Although we didn't score as many as we wanted, we synced quite well with each other on the track. I'm looking forward to seeing how things develop as we get on well off track and seem to have a good connection on track."

The ECCO Arena track record holder has no concerns about his start to the BSN Series campaign, " I have no concerns with my own performance, I've only had the 1 meeting with Redcar so I'm just bedding in and at
Scunthorpe, the track was tricky so the focus is now about getting dialled in at home."

The Bears are looking to register their first win of their BSN Series group campaign at the 2nd attempt with Jonas Knudsen and Ben Trigger set to make their home debuts whilst Charles Wright will be hoping to
continue his scintillating start to the season with another double figure return.

The visitors, Workington, make their first visit to the ECCO Arena since 2018 with the Comets boasting 2 former Grand Prix stars in Craig Cook and Troy Batchelor. Additionally, the Comets track Celina Liebmann, the
female World number 1 whilst their Finnish prospect, Antti Vuolas will be hoping to build on his impressive opening to the season.

Any supporters who are unable to attend the match are reminded that the match is being broadcast live on BSN.
