IPSWICH Witches star Chris Slabon is a major doubt ahead of Thursday night’s second leg relegation play-off with Newcastle on Thursday.

The Pole crashed at Brough Park and damaged his shoulder, while fellow Pole Robert Miskowiak hurt a rib.

Indeed came within one race of upsetting Elite League Ipswich as the Diamonds, who won the Premier League play-offs, led throughout the meeting and were eight points up after Heat 9 inspired by Danish duo Kenni Larsen - who broke the track record - and Rene Bach.

Ipswich rallied late-on and took the lead for the first time with a 5-1 in the last race from Scott Nicholls and Daniel King for a 46-44 victory.
