Henderson Insurance Scunthorpe Scorpions open their Premier League fixtures with an away visit to Somerset Rebels tonight (Friday, 7.30pm).

Czech international Zdenek Holub is still missing with a shoulder injury, and the Scorpions will again use the rider replacement facility for him.

The Scorpions are looking to bounce back from a 21-point home defeat to Peterborough suffered last Sunday, which concluded an up-and-down League Cup campaign.

The Rebels include Australian bad boy Rohan Tungate in their side. The controversial Tungate was handed a 21-day-ban last season, after a post-race incident at Scunthorpe’s Eddie Wright Raceway left Scorpions’ No 1 Josh Auty with a broken hand.

Scunthorpe promoter Rob Godfrey says: “Tonight marks the start of our Premier League fixtures and I don’t see any reason why can’t give the Rebels a match and take something from the meeting.

“Alex Davies used to ride for Somerset and he knows the place well very well, plus we have a number of other riders who go well around the Oak Tree Arena.

“Peterborough came to us on Sunday on the back of a home defeat, with a point to prove. Likewise we’ll be heading to Somerset tonight, with our lads out to prove that they are a better side than we saw on Sunday.”

Expected teams for this evening:

Somerset Rebels: 1. Josh Grajczonek, 2. Jake Allen, 3. Charles Wright, 4. Paul Starke, 5. Rohan Tungate, 6. Bradley Wilson-Dean, 7. Zach Wajtknecht.

Henderson Insurance Scunthorpe Scorpions: 1. Josh Auty, 2. Carl Wilkinson, 3. Alex Davies, 4. Ryan Douglas, 5. Rider replacement for Zdenek Holub, 6. Ashley Morris, 7. Josh Bailey.
