The Dane is still trying to overcome the lengthy injury lay-off he had when he broke his leg, an incident that kept him out for most of the season.

Bach, has described the first few weeks of the season as up and down although he knocked in impressive scores at home to Edinburgh last week and away to Glasgow on Sunday.

However, he said he is not putting any pressure on himself as he looks to start scoring consistently big points.

“I am still not really where I want to be with my speedway at the moment,” said Bach.

“It is down to a combination of things but I just need to get my head right again because I was off for a year and still putting pressure on myself.

“It was hard to be out for that length of time and because it was my first big injury I found it really hard to come back.

“But I am not thinking about it anymore and want to get back to enjoying my speedway.”

Despite Bach not performing to the abilities he knows he is capable of he is pleased with how the team has performed over the first few weeks.

The Comets have won all but one of their matches which was a narrow defeat to Newcastle where they were unlucky not to come away with a win.

Due to the early season success of the team Bach said he is enjoying his time at the Comets with the spirit at an all time high.

He said: “The team is really strong at the moment and it means I don’t have to put pressure on myself and I get to enjoy my speedway.

“I try and do my best and the way the team are performing at the moment is amazing.

“It is nice to be in a team where everybody gets on really well and are fun to be with.”

Bach is not in action again until the Comets meet Edinburgh on Friday night before then taking on Newcastle at Derwent Park on Saturday and he is looking to relax on his few days off.

Although he is up against his old team on Saturday he is just treating it as another meeting.

He said: “I still have a few friends at Newcastle but on Saturday they are the away team and we are there to get a win.

“I am not going to look at them as my old team but just another meeting we are aiming to win.”
