WOLVERHAMPTON will be going all-out for a big bounce-back when they host Belle Vue at Monmore this evening (8pm).

Parrys International Wolves went down to a 56-34 defeat at the National Speedway Stadium at lunchtime in the first of two Premiership encounters between the clubs on the Bank Holiday.

The Manchester venue proved as unforgiving as ever, with Wolves suffering a general lack of consistency and the home side starring at reserve in a meeting containing plenty of exciting racing.

The Aces recorded three 5-1s in the first six races to take control of proceedings, although returning duo Jacob Thorssell and Nick Morris gave the visitors some respite with maximum points over Kenneth Bjerre in Heat 7.

Skipper Rory Schlein was also a race winner in Heat 9 as he got the better of Dan Bewley in a major battle, but consecutive Aces 5-1s in the next two races put the match beyond Wolves – Dimitri Berge going past both Kyle Howarth and Sam Masters for a paid win in the latter.

Schlein’s tactical substitute ride in Heat 12 was unsuccessful as he lost out to first Bewley and then Jaimon Lidsey.

Morris and Luke Becker collected a 5-1 from an eventful Heat 14 as Berge lost out late on, and Thorssell completed a successful comeback with a good effort to split maximum man Fricke and Bewley in the last race.

The two teams now head back down the M6 for tonight’s return – where Wolves will be keen for a repeat of their 14-point home win over the Aces when they met in the Supporters’ Cup last month.

Fans are reminded of the 8pm start for tonight’s meeting, with additional attractions including 125cc British Youth races.

BELLE VUE 56: Max Fricke 14+1, Dan Bewley 10, Kenneth Bjerre 9, Jaimon Lidsey 7, Steve Worrall 6+2, Ricky Wells 6+1, Dimitro Berge 5+2.
WOLVERHAMPTON 34: Jacob Thorssell 9, Luke Becker 7+1, Nick Morris 6+1, Rory Schlein 5+1, Sam Masters 5, Kyle Howarth 2+1, Ashley Morris 0.
