Belle Vue Speedway: Nicholls: "We Must Embrace The Bigger Picture".

Belle Vue captain Scott Nicholls has welcomed yesterday's decision by the club and Manchester City Council that further urgent works on the National Speedway Stadium's circuit are required.

The Rentruck Aces were forced to postpone their Friday night clash with Leicester after heavy rain throughout the week washed out the track and brought to light several defects on Turns 3 & 4.

Nicholls says he and his team mates share the fans' frustrations at their lack of home meetings, but has urged people to embrace the bigger picture where these repairs are concerned.

He said: "I know there's a lot of people who have been left very frustrated by the number of postponements we've had, none more so than myself and the rest of the Belle Vue riders.

"But I think I speak on behalf of all the team and the officials when I say that I'd much rather us delay our home fixtures and get the track sorted than try to rush things for the sake of it.

"Unfortunately the weather got the better of us on Friday but in hindsight I feel that was a blessing in disguise. We've got some big events coming up this year and we want them to be successful.

"As frustrating as it is, I think it is the best and wisest decision to conduct further work on the track ready for our next meeting and the management team have our fullest support in that respect."

The Belle Vue boys travel to Leicester tonight hopeful of repeating their sublime victory over King's Lynn last week, something which Nicholls believes his team are more than capable of pulling off.

He said: "You can never underestimate people. It's when you get caught unaware that things start go wrong so you have to treat all teams, no matter how strong, with equal amounts of respect.

"Leicester may not be the strongest club on paper but they've got plenty of riders who are quite capable of delivering the goods on their day, so we have to ensure we go in to tonight prepared.

"We want to carry on from where we left off at King's Lynn. Belle Vue haven't won there for some time and the Stars look to be a strong outfit this year but we were able to match them step for step.

"It'd be nice to get the momentum building again at Beaumont Park. It's been very stop start with all of the rain offs but we're in good form right now so hopefully we can come away with a win.

"Leicester is a deceptive track. It rides different to how it looks but hopefully the changes they have made over the winter have been enough to open it up a little bit and allow a few more racing lines.

"We've got a strong and solid team from top to bottom and already everyone is showing great promise in their performances so we've just got to make sure to maintain our momentum tonight."

Coventry's Chris Harris will deputise for Rentruck Aces' spearhead Matej Žagar tonight, who is absent due to his commitments in Round 2 of the Slovenian National Championships in Ljubljana.
