Speedway....Gladiators tamed

Stoke will take an 11-point lead into the second leg of the National League KO Cup quarter-final after beating Plymouth Gladiators 50-39 at Loomer Road on Saturday night.
The Potters started well and quickly opened up a six-point lead in the early heats with an opening heat 4-2 and then a 5-1 from Joe Lawlor and Luke Priest over Richard Andrews who attempted everything to get past Priest.
Stoke continued to pile on the pressure with a further two 4-2 advantages from Lawlor and Priest — and the Tom Perry and Shelby Rutherford combination — to lead 26-16 after six heats.
