WOLVERHAMPTON young gun Kyle Howarth has called on them to make it two Elite League wins out of two as they host Swindon tonight (7.30).
The new-look Wolves opened their season in perfect fashion as they stormed to a stunning 52-38 away win over local rivals Coventry on Friday.
Howarth, who bagged 11 vital points at reserve, was delighted to enjoy a dream debut against his former club.
He is now looking for more of the same as another of his former employers, Swindon, travel to the West Midlands.
“It was a massive win for us at Coventry, and that was just what we needed in our first meeting,” Howarth said.
“To get an away win this early in the season is a massive boost, so it was a great result. We’ve got a great team, the top five are strong and me and Max just need to keep picking up points at reserve.
“I had a good start, I made a couple of mistakes so there is room for improvement but overall I was really happy to score 11 points.
“Everyone is enjoying themselves, there is a good atmosphere in the pits and everyone is getting on well.
“It’s a long year and there are a lot of matches, so we can’t get carried away and we just have to focus on getting a home win on Monday now.
“It’s going to be a tough meeting, especially given most of us haven’t had Monmore Green as our home track before, and Swindon will be a tough challenge.
“If we can make starts and ride like we did at Coventry then I’m sure we’ll be in a good position and we’ll hopefully get another win.
“If we can start the season with two wins out of two it would certainly get everyone on a roll and feeling positive, so we’ll obviously be giving it our all to come out on top again on Monday.”
Both sides will be at full strength for the meeting, with Swindon led by World No.5 Jason Doyle and featuring an all-Australian top five.
WOLVERHAMPTON: Joonas Kylmakorpi, Sam Masters, Jacob Thorssell, Freddie Lindgren, Mikkel Bech, Max Clegg, Kyle Howarth.
SWINDON: Jason Doyle, Justin Sedgmen, Josh Grajczonek, Rohan Tungate, Nick Morris, Stefan Nielsen, Charles Wright.
