Former Glasgow Tigers ace James Sarjeant hopes to leave his old team-mates disappointed as Workington Comets face home and away fixtures against the impressive Scottish side.

Sarjeant will drop to reserve for Comets, starting with tonight's home clash against the Tigers and he is hopeful that move can be the catalyst to kick-start his season.

He has struggled to find form during his first run of fixtures in blue and white but the swap with Matt Williamson should allow him to ease himself into meetings with a kinder start.

He said: "I'm moving to reserve which wasn't what I wanted but I'm looking for points.

"It's been a bit of a rubbish year so far but, hopefully, it'll do me the world of good and I can get some confidence back."

The Sheffield-born racer rode for the Tigers in 2015 and guested at Ashfield last weekend for Berwick, which he believes can help him and Comets carry on picking up points.

Glasgow are hoping to ramp up the pressure on rivals Edinburgh, who sit top of the Championship table, but Sarjeant hopes to push Workington back into the title frame with a pair of wins.

"They'll be tough meetings but I think we can actually win at Glasgow," he said.

"Craig Cook can do his job, he's the best No.1 in the league, so if everyone else is on it, I think we've got a chance.

"I like Glasgow. It's a good race track and it should help that I've been there before.

"They're all capable of doing a job but we've got to go for it and anything can happen on the night.

"What we've got to do is make sure we win our home matches and come out of our away meetings with at least a point.

"I thought we should have got more from Berwick last Saturday but I had an off night."
