Mildenhall programme cover Mildenhall were keen to get back to winning ways after their home defeat last week at the hands of Rye House. Luckily their casualties from that match were on parade but they faced a Sheffield side showing excellent form both home and away.

Sheffield opened with a 1-5 from Ben Wilson and Ricky Ashworth to leave Mildenhall with another uphill struggle. Jordan Frampton was excluded from the reserves race after harshly being adjudged as causing Paul Cooper who was behind him to fall. In the rerun the visitors added a 2-4 with a win from Cooper over James Brundle but Mildenhall still didnít have their troubles to seek. Jason King fell in heat 3 and was excluded from the rerun in which his brother, Danny, missed the gate but had little trouble winning from Legault and Sanchez for a shared race. In heat 4 Andre Compton slid off while well in front and Jason Lyons and Jordan Frampton cashed in with a 5-1 cutting the gap to two points with the score after four races reading 11-13.

Ben Wilson was excluded from heat 5 as he tried to manoeuvre his way past Danny King and ended up on the centre green. In the rerun it looked as though the King brothers were heading for a 5-1 but Jason King suffered motor trouble and could only cruise round for the third place point and a 4-2 to the Fen Tigers which levelled the match at 15-15. Andre Compton won heat 6 for a 3-3 but Sheffield were back in front again after taking a 2-4 in heat 7. Kyle Legault won the race from Jason Lyons and Emiliano Sanchez picked up the odd point from James Brundle. Sheffield then struck again in heat 8 with another 2-4 when Ben Wilson beat Jon Armstrong after Jordan Frampton had demolished the safety fence and been excluded. The score after eight races was 22-26.

In heat 9 Danny King flew from the gate to beat Andre Compton. Jason King took third so Mildenhall scored a 4-2 to cut the gap to two points but Sheffield restored it to four points again with a 2-4 in heat 10 when Sanchez forced his way to the front. Armstrong finished second but Legault took the third place point as Brent Werner slipped to the back. Jason Lyons won heat 11 for a shared race after James Brundle had fallen at the back and Danny King did likewise in heat 12 with Brundle, replacing Frampton, again at the back. This made the score 34-38 but time was running out for the home side.

A thrilling heat 13 also resulted in a shared race. Ricky Ashworth finally won his battle with Jason Lyons while Brent Werner held off Andre Compton for third. It was all over after heat 14. Jason King and James Brundle made the gate for Mildenhall but Emiliano Sanchez came from behind to win the race while Benji Compton also passed James Brundle for third place to take a match winning 2-4 for Sheffield. In the last race Danny King and Jason Lyons scored a 5-1 ahead of Wilson and Ashworth but it was too late to affect the score as Sheffield took both points.
