The Stellar Devils are on the road again on Sunday, this time as part of a double header at Brough Park as they take on the Newcastle Gems following the Monarchs vs Diamonds KO cup encounter.

This will be the 3rd away match off the season for the Devils and while league points have alluded them so far there have been positives to take from both and the spirit and battle within the team is there for all to see.

The new averages see a change to the Devils riding order with George Rothery's excellent early season form pushing him into the main body of the team. Lewis Millar dropping down to partner brother Gregor at reserve.

Elsewhere Nathan Greaves will continue to lead the line with backup expected from Tom Woolley and former Diamond Danny Phillips.

For the Gems Max Clegg will continue his role as number 1 and captain the former Monarch should be one off if not the top rider in the division.

Joe Alcock doubles up with the Diamonds while Kelsey Dugard and Ryan Terry-Daley provide the main back up.

The focal point for the Gems fans to watch may well come at the bottom end where two local youngsters Archie Freeman and Danny Smith will look to progress. Smith in-particular impressing in the return fixture at Armadale which off course saw the Gems victorious.

The plan is for a 6pm start although this may differ if the KO Cup clash between the Diamonds and Monarchs runs on.
