SOMERSET v WOLVES, PREVIEW

Tuesday August 08, 2017
WOLVERHAMPTON can move back up to second place in the Premiership when they travel to Somerset on Wednesday (7.30).

A draw or a win, or even if a consolation league point for losing by six points or less, would see the Parrys International Wolves jump above Belle Vue in the standings and close the gap on current leaders Swindon.

The Monmore men have already enjoyed success at The Oaktree Arena once already this season when they registered a 49-44 victory at the start of May.

And while skipper Freddie Lindgren is expecting a tough test, he is hopeful his side can add to their tally.

“The new Somerset boys have made them look much more like a team and they’re a lot more settled now,” said Lindgren.

“But we still want that top spot in the league and to do that we have to win some more away meetings.

“The rest of the boys have been there once already this season and won so they’ll know what to expect.

“Me and Jacob (Thorssell) really enjoyed racing there in the Pairs at the start of the season as well so we’re all really looking forward to it.”

Rider replacement will once again operate for Aussie ace Sam Masters who is currently sidelined with a collarbone injury.

SOMERSET: Richard Lawson, Cameron Heeps, Charles Wright, Patrick Hougaard, Josh Grajczonek, Jake Allen, Lewis Kerr

WOLVERHAMPTON: Freddie Lindgren, Kyle Howarth, Rory Schlein, Jacob Thorssell, Sam Masters R/R, Ellis Perks, Nathan Greaves
