“We would like to place on record our thanks to Dr Butler and his team who were absolutely brilliant with Kyle, and we knew he was in good hands.

It was such a heavy impact that he broke two boards and a fence post with his body and for a while it looked like he was quite badly hurt. The Comets’ clash with Berwick was abandoned after ten heats as medical staff were required to accompany Howarth to hospital following the accident with Bandits skipper Lee Complin, who suffered a suspected broken hand.WORKINGTON youngster Kyle Howarth had a remarkable escape from serious injury in a horror crash at Derwent Park on Monday.

(SPEEDWAY 4)“We are grateful to him and I know that the Bears fans will get behind him as he covers for Mark Jones' absence. We are also pleased to welcome back Ulrich at No.1 as he is capable of taking his compatriot Charlie Gjedde on in Heat 1.”Bears promoter Brian Havelock said: “We recognised that our opponents from Hertfordshire had a strong reserve pairing and knew that we had to cover that. The Bears are fortunate that Lee was available to be able to sort his equipment out at short notice plus organise some track time in advance of Thursday.

It’s a great result.”Manager David Hoggart said: “Emiliano works so hard and he plugs away every week and he got his reward today. He nudges forward steadily and he never lets us down, but today he was just outstanding. He was so fast and he went out on a broken frame in his last race and still won it! Sanchez reeled off five wins, the last of which came with a broken frame, and he was well backed by Ricky Wells with paid-eleven as the Tigers collected all four points.EMILIANO Sanchez’s 15-point maximum anchored Sheffield to a 50-40 win at local rivals Scunthorpe – to keep them in the hunt for League Cup qualification.
