LUKE BECKER admitted he will “stay cool” despite a wonderful paid 14 star showing in a cracking home win over Belle Vue.

The young American was simply sensational, dropping just one point, on only his second appearance at Monmore Green.
Parrys International Wolves romped to instant revenge for the afternoon defeat at Belle Vue with a 52-38 victory, having lost by 18 in Manchester.
But Becker, protege of four-times world champ Greg Hancock, was the name everyone was talking about.
He revealed: “It’s a good night for me and the team, pretty awesome for my second time here. But I won’t get carried away.
“I always stay super-cool anyway, that’s just the way I am. So I won’t let this go to my head. There’s tougher challenges ahead.
“It was pretty tough at Belle Vue earlier. I usually like the bigger tracks but it took me time to sort it out there.
“So it’s pretty cool to get back to Monmore and get the win for the team. I probably wasn’t expecting these points at this stage but it’s a good start.
“I’ll talk to Greg of course, we keep in touch. This is all down to him that I’m here really, he stepped it up for me. It’s a definitely a good night!”
It was a remarkably similar affair at Monmore to the clash in Manchester at midday, both in the Supporters Cup.
Wolves fell away in the latter stages at Belle Vue and it was all-level at Monmore after five heats. Then it was all about the home side.
The potent opening home pairing of Sam Masters and Kyle Howarth scored a vital 5-1 and then Becker produced an outstanding Heat 8 to lower the colours of the previously unbeaten Steve Worrall.
The knockout blow from the Wolves came in Heat 11 with that man Becker once again the hero with Scott Nicholls blasting past Max Fricke to extend the lead to a dozen points.
That seemed to burst the Belle Vue balloon. Rory Schlein and Nicholls produced another maximum over Fricke in Heat 13 to put the cherry on the cake.
To be fair Australian Champion Fricke was clearly out of sorts after a horrific crash in Manchester earlier.
But Wolves were far too powerful and solid throughout. Every member of the home side were paid for at least one win apiece. Schlein had a disappointing afternoon at Belle Vue, by his standards, but returned to his old self at Monmore with paid 13.
However, he what outshone by Becker. A star in stripes was truly born.
Wolves 52: Luke Becker 13+1, Rory Schlein 11+2, Scott Nicholls 9+2, Sam Masters 8, Kyle Howarth 6+2, Ashley Morris 5+2.
Belle Vue 38: Kenneth Bjerre 13, Steve Worrall 10+1, Max Fricke 5, Jaimon Lidsey 3, Ricky Wells 3, Dimitri Berge 2, Dan Bewley 2.
