LEICESTER v WOLVES, PREVIEW

Sunday May 20, 2018
WOLVERHAMPTON head to Midland rivals Leicester on Monday searching for their first away win of the season (7.30).


While their home form has been impressive, there’s certainly plenty more to come from the Parrys International Wolves who have suffered three straight defeats on the road so far.

Team boss Peter Adams isn’t panicking though and despite being without Kyle Howarth, who is competing in the Grand Prix Qualifier in Germany, he sees no reason why his side can’t pick up a result at the Paul Chapman and Sons Arena.

Said Adams: “It’s not ideal being without Kyle but it’s a good opportunity for him and it’s certainly fully merited.

“As for the team, before Thursday’s match at Swindon I set the them a three point benchmark from these three away meetings we’ve got.

“We didn’t manage to get anything there so it means there’s that little bit more pressure on us to get something from the Leicester match now to take us into Wednesday’s fixture at Poole.

“Leicester’s a place we’ve got a decent record at, but that doesn’t count for much in a new season so we know we need to go there and give it our best and hopefully we can come away with a positive result.”

Rider replacement will operate for Kyle Howarth while Leicester bring in two guests.

Richie Worrall stands in for Hans Andersen who is also in the same GP Qualifier, while former Wolf Ricky Wells deputises for Lions skipper Danny King who is ruled out with an ongoing arm problem.

Meanwhile, Wolves No.1 Jacob Thorssell missed out in his GP Qualifier in Slangerup, Denmark on Saturday.

The Swede finished on eight points but crashed out of his final ride, costing him the chance of a run-off with home favourite Niels-Kristian Iversen.

LEICESTER: Kenneth Bjerre, Kyle Newman, Ricky Wells, Krystian Pieszczek, Richie Worrall, James Sarjeant, Todd Kurtz.

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