RICHARD LAWSON dropped just one point in his appearance for Lakeside on Friday night.

Defeated only by Rory Schlein when they met in heat 7 of the SGB Championship shield meeting between Lakeside (54) and Ipswich (35) it certainly wasn't an unlucky Friday 13th for Richard, although it did prove a raceless night for Jake Allen as his engagement in the Scunthorpe v Newcastle fixture was rained off and now needs to wait until this evening when Newcastle host Scunthorpe before he can take to track.

Bradley Wilson-Dean was another Rebel to endure a rain-off as his guest appearance at Edinburgh was denied because of the weather on Friday, but he did enjoy a solid paid 11 score for Workington on Saturday with one race win and two paid victories claimed at Derwent Park as Workington scraped home 46-43 over the Edinburgh Monarchs, not least due to a 7 point contribution from their other guest, Charlie Wright who covered for Ty Proctor.

In Poland on Saturday world champion Jason Doyle scored 7+2 as Torun beat Wroclaw.

The Rebels travel to Leicester on Monday night, where the East Midlands side will be operating rider replacement for Michael Palm-Toft and have booked Robert Lambert to guest for Martin Vaculik, both of whom were injured in the abandoned meeting at Swindon on Thursday.

Monday's teams:-
Leicester - Robert Lambert (guest), Rider replacement for Michael Palm Toft, Danny King (capt), Krysztian Pieszczek, Hans Andersen, James Sarjeant, Kyle Newman - Team manager Simon Stead
Somerset - Jason Doyle (capt), Jake Allen, Charles Wright, Jack Holder, Richard Lawson, Jonas Jeppesen, Bradley Wilson-Dean Team manager Garry May
