DESPITE the Rockets' mauling of Scunthorpe on Saturday, team boss John Sampford admitted their Premier Trophy future is now out of their hands.

"Now we have to pick up three points in our last match against Somerset and wait for the other results," said Sampford.
"We need someone to do us a favour and hopefully King's Lynn can start by winning at Scunthorpe on Friday."

Victory though did come at a cost with Tommy Allen forced to withdraw from the meeting after a heat seven crash that also cost the visitors the services of Viktor Bergstrom.
It was the latest in a long line of set backs for Allen as Sampford admitted.
He said: "It's been a terrible time for him. If he has had any luck this season it's been bad luck!
