Oxford have been confirmed as the fourth and final qualifiers for the Elite League play-offs. The Silver Machine will now go to Poole in the semi-finals on Monday September 22 after finishing ahead of reigning champions Wolverhampton. Promoter Nigel Wagstaff said: "We're taking one meeting at a time and we are determined to beat Belle Vue on Friday. We still have lots to go for."

And Wagstaff is urging his riders to make mathematically certain their fourth place. Victory for the Silver Machine in Friday's clash with Belle Vue at Cowley would put them out of sight of closes rivals Wolverhampton.

Wagstaff said: "This is a meeting we have to win, we're not prepared to just sit back and take fourth place for granted. I believe in Jason Crump Belle Vue have the best rider in the world right now, it should be a massive meeting."
