WOLVES AIM TO HIT STRAIGHT BACK - AFTERNOON REPORT

Monday April 22, 2019
SCOTT NICHOLLS vowed to “turn the tables” on Belle Vue after a hard-fought defeat at the National Speedway Stadium.

The former British Champion was his usual swashbuckling self as the Parrys International Wolves went down 54-36 in Manchester in the midday clash.
Now the teams race down the M6 to face each other again at Monmore Green and Nicholls is delighted to have the opportunity for instant revenge.
He said: “It’s a tough place to come, particularly tough at times. It’s a good track but especially midway through the meeting it just comes down to out and out speed when it slickens off.
“When you look at them they are all quick but they probably weigh about eight stone and that’s where they come into their own.
“We put up a decent fight early on, we gave it what we could. We put the effort in but they were just quicker, it’s that simple.
“At least on a day like this we can quickly turn the tables tonight at Monmore Green. At the same time they've got riders of doing a good job round our place. It is what it is, contrasting tracks but we’ll just do our best to show our dominance tonight and hopefully get the result.”
Wolves kept it tight early doors in the heat of the midday sun but the Aces were scorching in the latter stages.
A massive Heat 8 5-1 for the home side over Kyle Howarth and Luke Becker put them 10 points up and a mountain for Wolves to climb.
Even though Belle Vue No.1 Max Fricke had an alarming crash while leading Heat 10, a re-run win by Steve Worrall from the back over Wolves’ strongest pairing of Sam Masters and Scott Nicholls kept the home side in control.
Two more maximum heat wins for Belle Vue in Heat 12 and 13 killed off any hopes of any glory in Manchester.
Belle Vue 54: Dan Bewley 12, Steve Worrall 9, Ricky Wells 8+3, Max Fricke 8, Kenneth Bjerre 7+1, Dimitri Berge 6, Jaimon Lindsey 4+2.
Wolverhampton: Sam Masters 10, Scott Nicholls 9+1, Kyle Howarth 6+1, Rory Schlein 6+1, Luke Becker 4+1, Ashley Morris 1.
