WOLVES v LEICESTER, PREVIEW

Sunday June 24, 2018
WOLVERHAMPTON star Kyle Howarth has challenged his team-mates to get straight back to winning ways when they host Leicester on Monday (7.30).

Parrys International Wolves suffered their first home defeat of the season last week, going down 46-44 to Belle Vue as they crashed out of the Knockout Cup.

But with league points to aim for again Howarth says Wolves must regroup instantly.

And with Monday’s opponents Leicester just three points behind the Monmore men, another league win would see extra breathing space created between the Midlands rivals.

Said Howarth: “Thankfully the Belle Vue meeting wasn’t in the league because we haven’t dropped points in the league at home.

“But we just need to regroup straight away and get this team going again.

“We need to go back to basics and work even harder to make sure that’s the only one we lose at home all season.”

Leicester include experienced Danish campaigners Hans Andersen and Kenneth Bjerre as well as exciting young Pole Kristin Pieszczek who is enjoying a solid first season in British Speedway.

They will however operate rider replacement for Kyle Newman who is ruled out with a shoulder injury as well as captain Danny King (arm) who is replaced by Charles Wright.

Normal admission prices apply at £18 adults, £13 concessions, £7 juniors (13-18), £1 children (6-12 included) while kids five and under go FREE.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Jacob Thorssell, Ashley Morris, Kyle Howarth, Sam Masters, Rory Schlein, Cameron Heeps, Nathan Greaves.

LEICESTER: Kenneth Bjerre, Kyle Newman R/R, Charles Wright, Krystian Pieszczek, Hans Andersen, James Sarjeant, Todd Kurtz.
