IPSWICH Witches must wait until this Saturday before seeing if they qualify for the Craven Shield final.

They should have been riding against Eastbourne and Wolverhampton at Arlington on Saturday, but the meeting was called off at 1pm.

Ipswich, who have 83 points to Eastbourne's 76 and Wolverhampton's 56 after the opening two legs, look as though they will be able to have Scott Nicholls and Chris Harris as guests for Pepe Protasiewicz (in dispute with the club) and Chris Louis (injured) as Coventry have no meeting scheduled.

The Premier League Fours event at Workington will rule out Daniel King and Steve Boxall.

An Eastbourne spokesman said on Saturday: “The track took quite a downpour last night, and combined with some showers this morning and many weather forecasts predicting light to heavy rain early evening till tomorrow morning, the club made the decision to call off the meeting early to save away teams and supporters travelling.”
