Craig Cook (pictured) was forced to watch on 12 months ago as Glasgow Tigers failed to win the big prize, the SGB Championship play-off.

The Cumbrian was injured when the club lost out after making the last four but he is raring to go this time.

Glasgow host the first-leg against Leicester Lions on Friday (7.30pm) at The Peugeot Ashfield Stadium with the second-leg in the Midlands 24-hours later.

Cook said: “I’ve made no secret of my feelings about riding for Glasgow. It’s the most professional club I’ve raced for, I love being a part of it.

“After missing out last year, it is awesome to be a part of it this year. To help this team to the top has been a real honour – and hopefully we can finish off the job this weekend.

“It is going to be tough and there is no room for error – we need to hit them hard.”

It could be a trophy double for Cook this season, after he won the Pairs title with team-mate Rasmus Jensen.

Glasgow pair Rasmus Jensen and Claus Vissing helped Swindon Robins claim the SGB Premiership play-off title.

The Wiltshire combine left Ipswich Witches in their slipstream to record a 62-27 second-leg victory and they cruised to a 111-68 aggregate over the two legs.

Rasmus Jensen claimed 11 points and Claus Vissing, a former Berwick Bandits racer, five in the runaway win.

Edinburgh Monarchs duo Cameron Heeps and James Sarjeant struggled on the night for Witches. Heeps and Sarjeant both scored one point in the crushing defeat.
