IPSWICH Witches reserve Chris Schramm endured a difficult night against Poole at Foxhall Stadium.

The 10-point victory for the visitors saw them gain a thoroughly deserved three points, but for Schramm it was the first time he had failed to score for the Witches all season.

“It's been a very difficult night, but I haven't ridden a bike in anger for more than three weeks,” Schramm said.

“It's completely mad and far too long a time to have off because you lose your reactions and your aggression.

“The team lost its momentum and when Poole got in front they were simply too fast”.

Poole's Bjarne Pedersen said: “It is always a bit of a shock for the home team when they lose and everyone looks for the reasons why.
