Witches face Mission Impossible as they bid to reach League Cup final

To many it will be seen as Mission Impossible I, II and III combined, but Ipswich Witches at least go into tonight’s League Cup semi-final, second leg, in good form.
Trailing by 22 points against an Edinburgh side who have already drawn at Foxhall Stadium this season and who are top of the Premier League, you will get very good odds on the Witches turning this one around tonight.
However, two thumping home victories over Berwick and Peterborough in recent weeks and a return to a full 1-7, has given the ‘Sackers’ Witches a bit of belief.
“It is going to be tough but the boys are riding as well now as they have all season at home,” Witches promoter Chris Louis said.
“My riders need meetings and they know there is only one way they can do that. At least this competition is still in our own hands.”

Edinburgh boast the Premier League’s No.1 rider Craig Cook, pictured above, in their ranks and the Scottish side are a formidable unit. While an aggregate victory for the Witches would be some turn around, realistically it is the League play-offs that will keep their season alive at Foxhall.
Plymouth’s clash at Rye House on Bank Holiday Monday was rained off and it leaves the west country side with four meetings still to race to overhaul the Witches – the cut-off date is September 14.
- 1 'I will be like Demolition Man... there will be a lot of pain' - Cook on his Town squad overhaul
- 2 Suffolk actress Helen McCrory dies following cancer battle
- 3 Rise in number of Covid patients in Suffolk and north Essex hospitals
- 4 Judge heading to Ipswich exit as contract clause could end Irishman's Portman Road stay
- 5 Frustrated Suffolk farmer returns dumped items to householders
- 6 All 24 League One home kits ranked from worst to first
- 7 Next steps outlined for decision on A12 traffic light plans
- 8 12 villages set to receive some of UK's fastest ever broadband
- 9 'He goes with our best wishes' - Cook confirms Judge will leave Town
Meanwhile the Premier League Fours final, which was curtailed at Peterborough following a serious injury to Lewis Kerr, will take place on a Saturday night, at a venue to be decided. The Witches are one of the finalists.
