The Division 2 match was a different situation, with Glasgow having 3 very experienced riders hoping to emulate the score line earlier in the season when Bury raced at Glasgow and were decisively beaten.
However there were pluses and minuses this time as Bury had Harry Radford back off holiday, but Dawar Mohammadi, whilst in the team was observing Ramadan and on fasting and consequently could not exert himself as he normally would.
Heat 1 saw Eryk Motala leading but Glasgow’s best rider passed him and with Colin Gray beating Bury’s Steve Mann Glasgow took the lead, however Harry Radford and Dawar Mohammadi put Bury back into the lead in heat two.
Eryk Motala won heat four then teamed up with Harry Radford in heat 5 and Bury were 5 points clear.
However two maximum heat wins for Glasgow put them 3 points ahead.

Mohammadi and Radford, took a hard fought heat 9, and Bury had another heat win in heat 10 to put Bury 5 points clear with two heats to go.
