BIRMINGHAM boss Graham Drury says he is assessing all available options following the latest injury to heat-leader Danyon Hume.

The Surestop Brummies No.5 was involved in a horrible looking incident at the British Under-21 Final on Wednesday which has left him with a dislocated elbow and a broken arm in three separate places.

“We’ll hopefully know a bit more after he has his operation this afternoon, but I think it’s fair to say he’s facing a lengthy spell off the bike,” said Drury.

“We’re all totally devastated for the lad himself first and foremost; he’s a such a cracking lad, he’s a talented speedway rider and it really is a big shame for him.

“We do wish him a speedy recovery and we urge him to not rush back from such a bad injury for his own sake.

“From a team perspective, it leaves us in a bit of a predicament and quite limited options – but we’re not going to panic.

“Things like this are all part and parcel of the sport unfortunately and it’s important we all stick together as a group – especially with another big meeting against Stoke on Monday (Perry Barr, 3pm).

“They say bad luck comes in threes; with Kean (Dicken) and Danyon getting injured and Chris Hay quitting the sport hopefully we’ve now had our fair share!

“I’ll explore as many avenues as I possibly can but our supporters now have an even bigger role to play in spurring on the riders who can line-up for us and giving them that extra bit of encouragement the lads need!”
