WINNING is a nice habit to have - even if it is approaching the end of the season for the Funky Catering Fen Tigers.

Mildenhall made it three victories on the bounce as they defeated the Isle of Wight 57-37 at West Row on Sunday afternoon.

Leading the way again this time with a stunning 15 point maximum was Taylor Poole who this week found his gating gloves and blasted his way to five stunning wins, including recording a time of 50.9 in heat two which was only a second outside the old track record.

The race of the night was when he was third out of the gate and passed former Fen Tiger Dean Felton on the inside down the back straight to secure the win.

Poole was well supported by skipper Barrie Evans who raced to 11 points, and a heat six fall, but it was a strong team performance with all the riders picking up valuable point to despatch the Islanders with relative ease.

Next week the Fen Tigers again switch their start time to 6pm as they entertain the Plymouth Devils in the penultimate fixture of the 2009 campaign which is sure to be another good meeting for the supporters.
