The Parrys International Wolves will head to Belle Vue looking to defend a 10-point lead in the second leg of the final on tonight (7.30pm) as they search for a perfect end to the season.

Greaves, who won the club’s Young Rider of the Year award at their end-of-season presentation on Friday, insists their injury-hit side can come out on top at the National Speedway Stadium.

Greaves said: “It’s going to be tough, but we’ve got to go there and believe we can win it.

“It would be a great way to end the season, by winning the Cup, and I think we deserve it after how close we came in the league.

“Obviously we’ve got a lot of injury problems but I think they’ll be missing riders as well, so hopefully we can do enough.”

Injured skipper Freddie Lindgren was crowned Rider of the Year on Friday night, while Jacob Thorssell was voted Team mate of the Year by his fellow riders and Jamie Griffiths was named Supporter of the Year.

Meanwhile, Thorssell revealed he is making ‘small progress’ following an operation on his broken back.

The Swede has been in hospital for three weeks since the horror smash in last month’s play-off semi-final against Belle Vue.

He wrote on Twitter: “It’s gonna be a long recovery but I have lots of time to prepare myself and be strong for next season.”
