Belle Vue Speedway: To The Lions' Den!

Belle Vue are back on the road this weekend, this time bound for the East Midlands as they bid to further enhance their Elite League points tally when they face off against the Leicester Lions.

Their more-than convincing away victory at King’s Lynn last week showcased the northern powerhouse at the peak of their powers, a performance they’re hungry to repeat on Saturday.

Club No.1 Matej Žagar will miss out on the journey to Beaumont Park owing to a fixture clash in his native Slovenia for the second round of his national championships in hometown Ljubljana.

The Rentruck Aces will utilise the guest facility for the missing World No.6 and have drafted in Coventry’s Chris Harris, a favourite of the Mancunian fans who will step in to fill the void at No.1.

The disappointment of Friday night has only served to inspire a fresh wave of voracity in Mark Lemon’s squad, a fact which is making them the favourite to walk away with the evening’s spoils.

Lemon said: “I always encourage the boys never to underestimate any opponent. If we’re going to be the force we want to be we have to go to these tracks and win, there’s no two ways about it.

“Leicester haven't had the strongest teams these last couple of years and they've been struggling quite a bit already this season, but that shouldn’t give way to our being complacent on Saturday.

“I’m sure there will be plenty of resistance from the Lions. They've changed the shape of their track over winter so it’ll be a tasty event and a heated affair because both sides are vying for victory.

“From our point of view I'm sure quite a few eyes will be on Joe [Jacobs] after the nightmare start he had at King’s Lynn last week, but that’s something he's got to put behind him and move on.

“Obviously it’d be great to have Matej [Žagar] with us but unfortunately his services are required back in Slovenia and we wish him the best of luck in his national championships in Ljubljana.

“We’ve recruited the services of Chris Harris at No.1 so we’ll be going into this at full-strength. The boys are just eager now to get racing and get some more points on the board for Belle Vue.

“The air of anticipation within the team is strong. They know there’s a job to be done and one of the easiest ways to get to the Play Offs is to be winning away from home sooner rather than later.

“Many of the issues with our away form have been addressed in the last twelve months and I firmly believe that what we saw at King’s Lynn is something that will continue on into Saturday night.”
