MILDENHALL Fen Tigers remain bottom of the British Premier League after losing twice to Scunthorpe Scorpions in the space of three days.
After suffering a six-point defeat on the Friday night, they welcomed Scunthorpe to West Row on Sunday in the hope of claiming their first league points of the season.
They made their traditional slow start however, and found themselves 10 points down after only four races.
The Fen Tigers got back to within five points at one stage, but in an ill-tempered affair there was some pushing and shoving in the pits after Jan Graversen had produced a hard ride in Heat 11.
Scunthorpe had the better strength in depth however, with four riders paid for double figures and Emiliano Sanchez suffering only one defeat at the hands of a home rider.
