WOLVES v KING'S LYNN, PREVIEW

Sunday April 30, 2017
WOLVERHAMPTON host King’s Lynn in a mouthwatering feast of double speedway Bank Holiday action at Monmore Green on Monday (6pm).

The Parrys International Wolves take on the Stars, in what should be a thrilling top flight clash, before Cradley entertain Lakeside in the National League (7.45 appox.)

Wolves skipper Freddie Lindgren has been in sensational form in 2017; he’s unbeaten by an opponent in the club’s last two home matches, has scored double figures on every occasion at Monmore Green so far and also finished runner-up at Saturday’s Speedway Grand Prix opener in Slovenia.

Lindgren admits he is feeling as good as ever and is backing his side to start where they left off after an impressive 55-37 win over Rye House last week.

“It’s been really good at home so far for the whole of the team,” Lindgren said. “We’ve won all five of our home meetings and our new-look side showed what we’re now capable of against Rye House last week.

“We just need to race how we did then and a win over King’s Lynn would keep us right up there and would keep our run going.

“Personally I’m feeling as good as ever. I’m going into Monday on the back of a paid maximum and a full maximum too and I’m carrying momentum from my performance in Slovenia on Saturday so I’m really looking forward to it.”

King’s Lynn include newly crowned British Under-21 Champion Robert Lambert as well as 2012 World Champion Chris Holder.

The Parrys International Wolves are at full strength and once again include recent recruits Rory Schlein and Mark Riss who both top scored for their respective SGB Championship sides over the weekend.

Reserve Nathan Greaves will also come into the fixture full of confidence after a much better week which not only saw him bag his first race win in Wolves colours, but he also finished fourth in the British Under-21 Final as well.

In the National League fixture which follows, Cradley Heathens are lead by former Wolf Tom Perry and also include entertaining showman Danny Ayres.

Lakeside have Ben Morley, one of the league’s leading riders, to spearhead their side and are managed by TV pundit and former England skipper Kelvin Tatum.
