Top four the aim in Wolverhampton Wolves double-header
Wolverhampton are aiming to move back into the Premiership’s top four when they head to King’s Lynn for a key double-header fixture tonight (7pm).
The Parrys International Wolves closed in on the play-off positions with a solid 53-37 home victory over reigning champions Swindon on Monday.
And while they’ll again be without injured duo Rory Schlein and Nathan Greaves, stand-in skipper Jacob Thorssell is confident they can add to their tally.
“Double-headers are never ideal for anyone but this one will be the same for both teams and they’re two big meetings because we’re both trying to get in those play-offs,” Thorssell said.
“I think them being without (Niels-Kristian) Iversen is a big blow for them and we need to try and make the most of that.
“We may be missing a few riders again but we showed against Swindon that we’re still a very strong team.
“So I think we can definitely win at least one of the meetings at King’s Lynn and if we could do that then that would be huge for our play-off chances.”
Lynn’s Iversen is required to race in his home country Denmark on Wednesday, as is recent Wolves recruit Jonas B Andersen with Newcastle’s Matej Kus deputising.
Glasgow’s James Sarjeant stands in for Greaves while rider replacement will again operate for Schlein at No.1.
Gates open at 6pm with admission prices as follows:
- Family Ticket (2x Adults + Unlimited U16s) - £54.00
