Scorpions target 59 points on Friday
ATTIS INSURANCE Scunthorpe Scorpions will not take part in the Championship play-offs, after Redcar won their final meeting at Plymouth last night (Tuesday) by 51-39.
Scorpions finished in seventh place, one place outside the play-off places.
To extend their season, Scunthorpe now require 59 points against Leicester Lions on Friday (September 2) in the second leg of a re-staged Knockout Cup quarter-final tie at the Eddie Wright Raceway. Lions hold a 58-32 lead from the first leg.
It’s not quite as an impossible task as it may sound, since Scorpions defeated Lions by 55-35 around the EWR on Good Friday and require just four more points than that previous tally.
Full preview to follow.
