TOBIAS Thomsen is ready to fight for another year with Birmingham in their final home fixture of the season tonight.

The Dane, who was re-signed by the Edwards Plumbing Brummies last month after being released earlier in the campaign, stunned supporters by roaring to double figures in last week's draw with Scunthorpe.

And now he's determined to show it wasn't just a one-off as they bring the curtain down on their Perry Barr fixtures.

"To be honest, I couldn't quite believe how the night went for me against Scunthorpe," Thomsen said. "I just kept believing in myself and it seemed to pay off.

"Everything just went to plan, the bike was working good, I felt good and it was as close to perfect as you can get, I think.

"To finally score some good points for Birmingham was so pleasing because I haven't really done that for them before now and it's frustrating because I know what I can do.

"It really is so frustrating when you know inside your own head what you're capable of and you're just not able to put that out there on track for whatever reason.

"When you're in that situation you kind of go into a hole, into a dark place I guess, and it's really, really tough.

"But I was really pumped to come back to Birmingham, I wasn't expecting it, but it's down to me to make the most of it.

"Some of the away meetings were hard but to come back in front of the against Scunthorpe was a dream come true.

"I'll give it everything again against Berwick and if I could come back on a nice average that suits the team next season then I would like that a lot."

Birmingham have a fully-fit 1-7 with Jason Garrity available after illness last week.

They face a Berwick side who need an away win to keep their play-off hopes alive; the visitors include popular former Brummies Leon Flint and Ben Barker, who guests for the Bandits at No.1.

BIRMINGHAM: Adam Ellis, Tobias Thomsen, Tero Aarnio, Paco Castagna, Jason Garrity, Nick Agertoft, Tom Perry.

BERWICK: Ben Barker, Dany Gappmaier, Tomas H Jonasson, Kevin Doolan, Jye Etheridge, Coty Garcia,
