Berwick Bandits will return to action after a two week lay-off when they take on high-flying Glasgow Tigers in the Knockout Cup this weekend.
The teams will meet in the first leg at Ashfield on Friday with the return at Shielfield on Saturday.
The Bandits will be back to full strength with Leon Flint returning to action after suffering a broken scaphoid in his left wrist, but the Tigers will be without the experienced Dane Ulrich Ostergaard, who has been sidelined with a broken wrist and a lower back injury.
The meetings against Glasgow will be followed by an away Championship league fixture at Newcastle on Sunday (August 1). The meeting at Brough Park starts at 4pm.
On Saturday, the Bullets faced Mildenhall in a National League fixture when they edged the meeting 46-44, claiming victory in a last heat decider with a 5-1 courtesy of Kyle Bickley and Luke Crang.
Crang, in his first meeting for the team, and riding as a replacement for Leon Flint who is now ineligible to compete in the National League, raced to a 14 paid 15 maximum, whilst Bickley scored 13 paid 14.
Top performers for Mildenhall were Luke Ruddick and Sam Hagon, both with 13 paid 14.
