Brimming wth confidence after their superb victory in Norfolk, Belle Vue are fired up and ready to tackle their first home match of the season against the struggling Leicester Lions on Friday.

With the forecast in their favour, and a successful practice under their belt, the Rentruck Aces are particularly eager to entertain their home crowd having last done so in the 2015 EL Grand Final.

Team boss Mark Lemon, who meticulously watched over Wednesday’s closed-doors session, says the increasing anticipation for this meeting is making his squad all the more feisty in the build up.

He said: “Any doubts over the condition of the track have been put to bed in the wake of today’s closed practice. The boys had a good session and are exceptionally keen to get things moving.

“Leicester on paper aren't the strongest Elite League side right now but that doesn’t mean anything where the meeting is concerned, so there’s no chance we’ll be dropping our guard at any point.

“We have to maintain caution. What we can’t forget is that this is a fresh track and everyone will arrive on Friday with a clean sheet, because this will be the first competitive action it has hosted.

“There’s already a real buzz of excitement around the place. My hope is that the guys have taken plenty of notes and made full use of our practice time so that we can finish the night victorious.

“Coming off that away win at King’s Lynn has filed us full of confidence and from a former racer’s point of view, I can’t wait to see four guys going out there and turning those wheels in anger.”

One man who unfortunately won’t be turning a wheel however is club No.1 Matej Žagar who, due to a fixture clash in Poland and an FIM ruling going against Belle Vue, will be missing in action.

Upon learning this Lemon took swift action and booked a most reliable guest in Coventry’s Chris Harris, ex-Belle Vue captain and a man who played a significant role in the team’s 2015 success.

He explained: “There’s a fixture clash between Belle Vue and Gorzów on Friday and because it involves the UK and Polish federations, it’s down to the FIM to rule who takes priority over Matej.

“Unfortunately for us the ruling went in favour of Gorzów. It’s a bit annoying but nobody is to blame for the situation, Matej least of all. He’s extremely disappointed and frustrated to be missing out.

“Like the rest of us, he was really fired up and looking forward to a good meeting. We have opted to use the guest facility for him at No.1 and of course our natural choice was Chris Harris.

“He did a fantastic job for us last year in the build up to the Play Offs. He’s an exciting rider who always gives 100% to his racing and we know that he’s capable of scoring some serious points.”
