Leicester face one of the sports glamour clubs on Saturday with the visit of the Belle Vue Aces to the Beaumont Park Stadium.
The visitors are one of the pre-season tips for a play-off position and have already given an indication of how strong the team is by winning their opening fixture at King’s Lynn by a fifteen points winning margin. “The Aces are probably stronger rider for rider than Lakeside who beat us last week so we cannot afford to fall behind and it is important that we achieve success very early in the meeting to get our confidence up” said the Lions Team Manager Norrie Allan.
The Aces number one rider Matej Zagar is missing from Saturday’s meeting against the Paul Chapman and Sons Lions as the Slovenian is competing in Round 2 of his National Individual Championship competition at Ljubljana. As it is a national event the Aces are entitled to a guest and Chris Harris will be deputising.
The Lions are unchanged from the team that rode against Lakeside last week. “Our riders have been afforded a practice session at Leicester and hopefully that will lead to us delivering a much improved showing following the home defeat against the Hammers” added Allan.
Leicester: 1. Patrick Hougaard, 2. Nicolai Klindt, 3. Grzegorz Walasek, 4. Szymon Wozniak, 5. Sebastian Ulamek, 6. Josh Auty and 7. Paul Starke
Belle Vue: 1. Chris Harris, 2. Max Fricke, 3. Scott Nicholls, 4. Richie Worrall, 5. Craig Cook, 6. Joe Jacobs and 7. Steven Worrall
