A smaller than usual podcast has been served up by our regular speedway panel.

Home Straight – brought to you by the Eastern Daily Press and hosted by one of their sports reporters Gavin Caney – is usually a fortnightly offering, for fans of the high-drama two-wheel motorsport

Here is the ninth chance to listen to Caney and his high-profile co-hosts Olly Allen and Simon Stead, who are joined by special guest, Poole and Plymouth rider Kyle Newman.

In their latest bitesize offering, the trio discuss what makes a good team boss while Newman serves up on the show's finest interviews yet as he tells the story of how Derek Sneddon saved his life following an accident.

Recently retired rider Allen is the manager of the BSPA-backed national Poultec Speedway Training Programme and lifelong friend of Sheffield Tigers captain, Team GB international and guest Sky Sports pundit Stead.
