The talking point of two meetings in as many days for Mildenhall was an injury to influential teenage reserve Lee Smart. The 16 year was involved in a high speed crash with Darren Andrews at Coventry on Monday during the Fen Tigers 54-39 CL Trophy victory.

"Lee has been taken to hospital and there is a chance that he might lose the tip of one of his fingers" explained general manager Graham Drury who was otherwise pleased with the outcome of Monday's meeting that sees his side remain unbeaten in the competition so far this season.

"Coventry is a terrific place to race in and I think both teams responded. We had some terrific support yet again and I was impressed with a lot of what I saw from both teams on the night. Colin Pratt (Coventry manager) was very complimentary about our team and methods and it's always encouraging to hear a man of his experience and knowledge talking like that."

"Our top end strength is such that we were able to rest Gary Phelps and we saw points coming all the way down the line. That is so, so important because it's no good the likes of Ritchie Hawkins or Jon Armstrong for example banging in maximums if we don't have the back up. Lee's injury took a bit of the shine off the victory. But we won't know the full extent of the knock for a day or so and hopefully he will be fit for our clash with Stoke on Sunday".

The Superior Exteriors Fen Tigers will be without Kyle Hughes on Sunday as the 15 year old will be riding at Buxton in a championship meeting. "We knew about that and certainly wish Kyle well" added Drury. He's made a big impact in a short space of time and will be back in contention the week after. The Stoke meeting won't be easy, but I do have a couple of riders on standby to go in at reserve and I'll make those decisions after learning how Lee (Smart) is".

Drury is waiting to hear from Kings Lynn regards a restaging of their KO Cup clash after Sunday's first leg was washed out with the Superior Exterior Fen Tigers 43-17 in front after 10 heats. "It's disappointing to build a big lead like that and then have the meeting called off, but I'm sure we can do it again" continued Drury.

"We are hopeful of another good Cup run this year and you could sense how much the lads wanted to dominate our home leg to put us in with a good chance of completing the job at their place. We banged in seven maximum heat wins over the 10 races completed and really dominated right from the word go."

"I'm sure the supporters would like to see tighter score-lines, but from a professional point of view, I thought we were spot on. I have been in touch with Kings Lynn and we are trying to sort some dates. But as yet I don't have a definite answer".
