LEICESTER v WOLVES, PREVIEW

Sunday July 01, 2018
WOLVERHAMPTON head to Midland rivals Leicester on Monday (7.30) - and team manager Peter Adams has stressed the importance of picking up away victories.

That’s something the Parrys International Wolves are yet to do in 2018 in what has been a Premiership dominated by home successes.

In fact there have only been four away wins in the top flight in the opening months of the campaign, and Adams is keen to see his side begin to break that trend.

“While we have picked up the odd point on the road here and there, we need to find some better form on the road, mainly some wins, and quick,” Adams said.

“These away points are very precious, even more so in a year like this where away wins are very hard to come by for all sides in the league.

“This Premiership is wide open and we need to become one of the teams who are able to grind out some away wins and Monday gives us another opportunity to do just that.

“We’ve got some riders who ride Leicester very well and hopefully we can go there and put in a good performance.”

Wolves will make a late decision on the fitness of Kyle Howarth while Leicester will hand debuts to Charles Wright and ex-Wolf Ricky Wells.

LEICESTER: Kenneth Bjerre, Ricky Wells, Charles Wright, Krystian Pieszczek, Hans Andersen, James Sarjeant, Todd Kurtz.

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